Europe and UK praise:
“Full Tilt Boogie is getting into its groove and is outpacing many albums in its sort I’ve heard recently as is competing full on with my favourites in the genre…The title in the right hand corner is nothing but a statement, full disclosure. Brace yourself to rock!– Wout de natric, WoNo Music Blog (Netherlands)
From “Warpath” to “Jesus, Jail, Or Texas”, from “Leavin ‘On My Mind” to the final “Back To You” with his clear guitar duets that refer to the Allman Brothers Band of the “Eat A Peach” period, all contributes to forming a group to be strongly recommended. A (for us) beautiful discovery. —Lonestartime (Italy)
“Full Tilt Boogie is full of up-tempo songs that combine influences from country rock, blues rock and Southern rock, combining a traditionally sounding roots sound with wonderfully teasing guitars. It occasionally reminds me of the early records of R.E.M., which were much more rootsier than the most successful records of the band. All in all a nice plate. A very nice plate even.” – Erwin Zijleman, De Krenten Uit De Pop (Netherlands)
“Full Tilt Boogie is full of booming honky tonk, where the blues are drowned in shots of whiskey.”—Altcountry.nl
Keys and Chords (Belgium)
“‘Full Tilt Boogie’ sees songs such as Lord, Have Mercy, Wicked Ways, the sublime and rather fabulous Jesus, Jail, or Texas, Leavin’ On My Mind and Back To You inhale deeply, take in the rush of air that surveys the scene from the deep south and lets go with unnerving majesty.”—Liverpool Sound and Vision
“WOW! Bullard has a delightfully leathery voice and his band are red hot, to the point of melting the CD Player on that opening track; and it’s fair to say……things only get better from then on in!” — TheRockingMapgie (UK)
” This is unrelenting, full throttle outlaw country assault with screaming guitars and riffs that sound at times like the Allman Brothers on steroids. “– Jim Hynes, Elmore Magazine
“Full Tilt Badassery…It is a rowdy, raucous good time, that changes pace when necessary to settle you down and allow Bullard to really unleash himself on you. It’s a very full and robust record that takes you on a journey with stops including rowdy women, living your own rowdy existence, and all points in between.”—Country Music Armadillo
“This is straight-up entertaining fare – musically and lyrically – and I could take a whole album of it. Luckily, there’s one on the way.”— Jolene Country Music Blog
“Calvin plays a double shot of the new southern rock sounds of Mr. James Scott Bullard. His new album is called Full Tilt Boogie and it lives up to its name…“James Scott Bullard has delivered a Southern Rock album par excellence.” — Tony Ives /Americana Music Show
“Waving flags is a hazardous business these days but James Scott Bullard is a deserved standard bearer of the southern rock tradition. Drawing on impeccable sources he has created his own original, authentic style that flies high above some very pale imitations of one of music’s finest genres.”—Lyndon Bolton, Americana Music Show
“If you are looking for your next honky tonk hero, I think I may have found him. His name is James Scott Bullard (JSB) and he is pure, 24 karat gold.”— TwangriLa
“James Scott Bullard’s ‘Full Tilt Boogie’–“This album is great from start to finish…Don’t think twice. Get this one now.”— Bob Leggett, LA Music Critic
‘”The South Carolinian’s burly baritone appeals with the rough warmth of an overly loved flannel shirt, making hard-luck tales like “Lord, Have Mercy,” “Wicked Ways” and “Jesus, Jail, or Texas” more relatable. RIYL Jamey Johnson, Waylon Jennings, Jerry Reed.”—Pasadena Weekly
“Walmart parking lot music for the country folk that don’t go to Sunday meeting. Down and dirty, loaded with electric blues, when you’re piloting that big rig on reds, this record becomes totally clear.” — Chris Spector/Midwest Record Entertainment News
“The raw, high-energy boogie of “Hey, Hey Mama” and the swinging tempo of “Evil Lovin’,” showcases Bullard’s fun, delivering an edgier country rock sound. ” — J. Pasinski/JP’s Music Blog
