I have really liked these guys every since I bought my first Black Keys disc (Chulahoma) about 5 or 6 years ago and now have all of their albums, I came across this CBS Sunday Morning clip from the CBS News website and thought I'd share with y'all. Pretty cool...

No longer the under dogs

Their latest album, El Camino is fantastic. Starts off rolling and never lets up.

My son got me El Camino for my birthday a month back and I like it a lot too. He mentioned that it's the most staight-up rock of their releases and I'd like the others more; so I'll be sampling another soon. Any recos for the 2nd one?

Agreed Rick.
I've been listening to the Black Keys since the early days, I can't remember which album I started with but I went back and bought the predecessors shortly after.

What I find funny is the kids who are loving them now and keep referring to them as "this new band..."


Oh Crap! I'm old. Somebody could have freakin warned me this might happen.

For those of you who are fans of vinyl, a special edition of El Camino was released this past Saturday, Record Store Day. It's a double LP set run at 45rpm for even better dynamics than the "standard" edition. I urge you to pick up a copy if you have the opportunity and are still spinning LPs. This is a band that really gives a damn about sound quality and it shows!

It was a limited release, so best bet would be to check with any local stores listed at the following link:

Good luck!
