Julian Sas – Bound To Roll (2012)
Julian Sas’ new studio album is called Bound To Roll. Like a big freight train the Dutch blues-rocker adds in the album’s title track and that’s a pretty accurate description of his approach to making music.Besides 9 new Sas originals, Bound to Roll also features three covers; Rory Gallagher’s Shadow Play, Bob Dylan’s Highway 61 Revisited and Humble Pie’s 30 Days In The Hole (their seventh single and also included on their Smokin’ album) About the choice of these songs Julian explains: ‘Shadow Play’ totally reflects my feelings about the recent period of my life. Especially the text. The song fits perfectly with my own songs. Dylan’s ‘Highway 61 Revisited’, is just a killer song, the groove, the lyric – everybody needs to get rid of something on Highway 61, personal or other. This is also the track that made me fall in love with playing slide. ‘30 Days In The Hole’; Steve Marriott is one of my favourite singers and writers. This song I wanted to record because of the aggression of the riff, a lot of anger, one of the greatest rock-riffs ever.
