“Rod takes lead vocals & plays all guitars & six string banjo. with his extremely smooth & well-oiled band. They present 13 original numbers that ooze sunshine filled aural delights. The mellow laidback funky guitars merge & dance with keyboards that sweetly pepper the air while in the background urging horns & violin tightly entwine, creating an undercurrent of irresistible rhythms that lifts you to your feet. Black Widow & Guilty of the Blues exemplifies the bands ability to instill & fuse the denser Chicago club guitar feel with a looser swinging, wandering saxophone led southern sound. The fluid rich, ringing guitar work of the very pleasant shuffle entitled Shufflin Sue, wonderfully conveys a hot, languid & stfling Saturday night out in the open air. The rock inflected guitar & slide work on the motorway based I-75 foot tapping lifts & gently drives the froove happily along in the best traditions of the master, Chuck Berry.”
