Despite its best intentions, opener “Run Wild” never recovers from its uneasy resemblance to a mash-up of the Steve Miller Band’s “Wide River” and Rush’s “Limelight.” An impotent cover of Muddy Waters’ “Baby, Please Don’t Go” fails to cleanse the palate, and overabundant food metaphors burn innuendo to a crisp in blues-rock jam “Special Sauce.”
