Mississippi Queen is one of the longest band in activity in Croatia (if not THE longest band) having formed in 1989 and “Oh Yeah!” is their fifth album. They aim at an authentic sound and one could reproach them to the Barnshakers in term of sound; Musically the band is good but the material if not bad (far from that) doesn’t bring something new to the genre (contrary to the Barnshakers who have he songs and the musicianship). Furthermore Don Karlos their singer shows some weakness being slightly off pitch on some songs. Maybe a producer could have helped them to tighten up their sound.
