I pity anyone who hasn't heard NRBQ. An excellent pick!

"I have heard NRBQ's name mentioned for years (they've been around for thirty), but I hadn't given them a good listen until I bought this 2 cd set on impulse. Conclusion: I've been cheating myself for years! This eclectic blend of rock, blues, rockabilly, and country has everything music can offer. It's fun, but not simple by a long shot. All their songs are well crafted. And the songs they didn't write they make their own with arrangments no one could come up with in a million years. Even their lyrics are clever. You can tell a lot of thought goes into their song writing. Their music is foot-tapping fun that also appeals to your intelligence, your heart, and your very soul. It's no mistake Keith Richards, Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello, and Bonnie Raitt are on their fan list (Bonnie Raitt covered a couple of their songs on her cd's) I'm not being paid to say this. In fact, this is the first review I've ever written about any artist anywhere. Their music makes you feel glad to be alive. What more can I say? They simply have to be heard to be believed."
The Motley Crue of Geeks Everywhere!

"I swear, anyone with more than one Dave Matthews CD should be slapped and forced to listen to NRBQ. These guys are God's gift to pop music - maybe more kids would PLAY music if they could hear NRBQ instead of Eminem. Whistle While You Work is a whimsical poppy tune, Captain Lou Albano is a total rip, and RC Cola and a Moon Pie is one of the best pop songs in history. This is a rare treat ... two discs of music that just can't compete with the excess and the slick production of Limp Biscuit and Brittney Spears. And Amen to that!"
Reissue! Reissue!

"I have been familiar with these guys since they first appeared in the clubs of New England, and when (after shifting from cassettes and reel tapes to CD's) it was time to rebuy their stuff, I was gratified to see that so many of their releases are available....and disappointed that my favorite (the "scraps/workshop" double album) was not! Anyone who doesn't like this band learned their taste from MTV, God love 'em."
