The Racky Thomas Band comes from Boston, and they have put out three self-released CDs. Last of the Big Spenders was released in 1998 and is their second CD, a great collection of some old time blues. The songs on this CD are very diverse and just a whole lot of fun to listen to and, no matter what style they decide to play, they pull it off.

The CD starts off with a bang with "Sweet Dough Baker," a great old time blues song with very nicely played guitar by Nick Adams and vocals by Racky, who also plays harmonica. The next track, "Don't Treat Me Like That," picks up right where "Sweet Dough Baker" left off, but with more of a sly feeling to it. The next couple of songs are very solid and well played, with "Rack'em Up" a great instrumental showcase for Racky's harp playing. "Last of the Big Time Spenders" is a very solid straight ahead blues song, and it sounds new and refreshing. Track eight, "Tears Fell Down Like Rain," is the best song, and it is unlike anything else on the CD as it is a ballad about a relationship that did not work out that well. This CD is very much worth getting. You can find it at cdfreedom.com, where you can find Racky's other CDs. It is well worth the search. (http://www.bluenight.com)
