Album of the Day
Eat At Whitey's
Erik Francis Schrody, better known as Everlast, first tasted fame as a member of hip-hop group House of Pain and got an even bigger serving of it with breakthrough solo album WHITEY FORD SINGS THE BLUES. On the 2000 follow-up, EAT AT WHITEY'S, the performer strikes a similar balance between folk-blues troubadour and streetwise rapper, aided by such guest stars as Carlos Santana, Cee-Lo Green and Warren Haynes. From "Black Coffee" to "Black Jesus," these dozen originals (plus a cover of Slick Rick's "Children's Story") weave tales of bad breaks and second chances with a conviction sure to hook listeners. Everlast was born on this day in 1969, and to celebrate his birthday, we'll cue up the Gold-certified EAT AT WHITEY'S.
