Lucius and Lamar Parr – Albert Collins’ young Arizona cousins – are back with a follow-up to their 1995 debut CD for Do It Right. Like all good sophomore efforts, Yoakum Texas Blues represents a significant step forward. Lucius shows off his Collins influence most prominently on the title track, an instrumental shuffle, but his playing is featured on all but a couple of cuts. Lamar is an increasingly capable vocalist who sounds a bit like Lonnie Shields. These guys might have a tough act to follow within their own family, but they show every sign of making it on their own. This is a solid offering of contemporary blues that should help the Parrs move beyond regional exposure.
