Leftover Salmon pays homage to their self-coined genre of “poly-ethnic Cajun slamgrass” with the New Orleans-styled cooker, “Fire and Brimstone.” Originally conceived of as a tribute to The Neville Brothers, bassist and producer Greg Garrison instead steered the song in the direction of Link Wray’s early ‘70s version, and it serves as the perfect vehicle for an impromptu collaboration with Oliver Wood of The Wood Brothers. The cut also gives long-time LoS drummer, Alwyn Robinson, a chance to shine, anchoring the “bluesgrass” interpretation with a deep percussive pocket.
