I liked 'em a bit at first - then I got "Songs we Taught the Detroit Cobras" with all the original versions so now I don't need 'em anymore. Kudos to them for picking great songs to cover though.
Maybe they're better live, I haven't had the opportunity to see them.
As cover bands go I'm much more into the Del Moroccos.
I Like the band too , but I think they only toured in USA ?
Am I wrong ?
Cause I never heard of them playing Europe , especially France.
Rachel sounds NOTHING like Ruth Brown! Not even close! I personally can't stand the Detroit Cobras nor do I like her voice. Their choice of covers are great but I hate the way they do them. I prefer the originals and don't need to hear them butchered. As a R&B/Soul fanatic, they actually offend me a bit. The only good thing about them is that some people hear these hacks and then search out the originals. After hearing the originals, I don't know how anyone can fill their ears with this garbage ever again.
the concept of getting 'offended' by the Detroit Cobras...hahaha!
lighten up man! they are just a really fun bar band.
I agree with the original poster but as for Rachel being "smokin hot"...uhh...lets just say your taste in women is more questionable than your taste in music!
