Six Pack

A jammer from way back, this Alabama-born, New York-based blues ’n’ roots vet must have loved cutting “Something I Can’t Find,” the first tune on this six-song EP to feature an extended guitar break. Kilby also gets an audible kick out of trucking country-style through Cream’s “Sunshine of Your Love,” trading licks with banjoist Andy Goessling. But he’s even better on the four tighter tracks, three of which find him pining for various sets of good old days. On “When the People Sang,” he plays flower-power apologist, remembering the ’60s as a time when folks actually cared. On the folk-pop nugget “Cro-Magnon Man,” he longs for an even earlier era, smashing his computer with a mastodon bone.
