Dave Hole
Outside Looking In
Alligator Records

Electric slide guitarist Dave Hole wails with razor-sharp intensity on Outside Looking In (Alligator 4881; 50:09). What this Aussie blues vet lacks in pipes he makes up for in blistering, over-the-top bottleneck technique on originals like "Jenny Lee," "Blues Begins at Home," "How Long?" and "Walk Away." For a change of pace from the relentless full-throttle slide licks, there's the engaging acoustic Dobro offering "Nobody." Raucous tunes for bar bands and bike rallies.
