What a band!  One of the greatest ever rhythm sections.  Great groove playing by all concerned.

Can highly recommend their latest album, “Deep In America”. Cracking stuff and, like their last one, “Road To Rio”, it comes with a bonus CD of the mighty Hollywood Fats Band.

Hi Steve – no criticism intended – just some self-promotion for bluesinthenorthwest.com.

Many thanks for your continued contribution to the site.

No probs, Ken, and, as Grahame says, nice review of the album. Just wish they’d tour over here (along with the Mannish Boys!).

We just received a review copy of the latest Mannish Boys CD along with a very good new release from Kirk Eli Fletcher.

Watch this space for details.
