Creating a classic live recording through their relentless touring schedule has paid big dividends for Asheville, North Carloina’s Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band on their raucous document, Greatest Hips Volume II.
The veteran festival favorite has captured their contagious party vibe on the brass-laden shakers "Booty Show" and "GFL." The grooves get heavier with extra helpings of percolating bass and jarring lead guitar workouts via the rhythm monsters "Say I Am" and "Bottle Rocket." Dave Partin’s syncopated drumming keeps YMBFBB from exploding beyond the clouds with his strong base of pulverizing backbeats.
Produced by Aaron Solomon and Gregg Hollowell and recorded with Solomon Mines Mobile, Greatest Hips Volume II inevitably opens up Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band to a new audience and new venues. But, be prepared when you play this one to dance like every night is New Year’s Eve.
Greatest Hips Volume II is out now on Yo Mama’s Big Fat Records.
