Amboy Dukes & Damn Yankees

Call of the Wild

While this album might have lifted its title from Jack London’s famous novel, this Call of the Wild is as different from the book as is possible. This de-drugged version of The Amboy Dukes sounds polished and acts as a bridge from their previous psychedelic musical style to Ted’s future hard-hitting guitar style.  This record demonstrates the band’s varying inspirations, the track “Pony Express” sounds similar to Deep Purple’s “Highway Star”, while “Below the Belt” could easily be the Rolling Stones’ “2000 Light Years from Home”. With funky piano boogie sensibilities and a funky sound, this record will infuse The Amboy Dukes fan with the spirit of the wild.
