First Blood (1996)

EW's GRADE
A

Details Lead Performance: Mike Henderson & the Bluebloods; Genre: Country

Henderson may be best known as a songwriter (Patty Loveless, Travis Tritt), but First Blood's blistering, seamless blues covers prove he's a remarkable guitarist and frontman. The Bluebloods, an impromptu band including Stevie Ray Vaughn's keyboardist Reese Wynans, are as tight as a too-small shoe. Look for this one to show up on best-of-the-year lists.
