Billy F. Gibbons already has his own band — a li’l boogie-rocking trio from Texas you might have heard of named ZZ Top — but in recent years he’s also stepped out with a couple solo albums. His first solo release, 2015’s Perfectamundo, was a Latin-tinged set of bluesy originals and cover songs, but his new follow-up, The Big Bad Blues, is a more straightforward and harder-rocking blues record. The new album is a mix of original tunes and such covers as Bo Diddley’s “Crackin’ Up,” Muddy Waters’ “Standing Around Crying” and the Delta blues standard “Rollin’ and Tumblin.’” Gibbons’ own songs, such as “Let the Left Hand Know,” fit in well with their deep-chugging drive and smoky roadhouse atmosphere, spiked as ever by his acute, piercing guitar solos.
