Best Roots CD: “Let’s Go To
Therapy” (Swamp) by Monty Warren
and the Friggin’ Whatevers. Roots take different forms on
this West Palm Beach singer/guitarist’s latest CD — from the speedy,
Ramones-like opener Scraped Off the Floor to the sing-along title track
featuring former Faces keyboardist Ian McLagan. Softer, Neil Young-inspired
numbers like Nashville Sunrise and Icalyn lead to a rocking closing cover
of Mott the Hoople’s Jerkin’ Crocus.
