[HUCKLEBERRY HOUND ON MY TRAIL] Even during its early ’90s heyday, when uncomplicated sentiment soaring over prefab riffs and a moniker redolent of second-tier comic strips all but guaranteed college radio play, Big Head Todd and the Monsters wasn’t exactly the likeliest alt-band to endure a quarter of a century. Third album Sister Sweetly somehow went platinum without ever budging the Billboard 100. Save those few years of pleasant modern rock-craft shorn of jammier tendencies, the band wasn’t exactly alternative, either. Once freed from major-label supervision, the Boulder trio embarked on what may well be a lifelong tour of a sprawling, explicitly casual mélange of funk, roots and members’ passions of the moment: latest album 100 Years of Robert Johnson assembles a fantasy camp of living legends to bless technically proficient renditions of the Delta blues as interpreted by men who’ve perhaps never known sadness.
