CD Reviews

One of the Best they've recorded

"Although I'm a Roomful fan who misses the "old crew" (Robillard, Piccolo, Copley, Porky etc...), this CD can still be considered one of Roomful's best ever.Of note is the lead singer/harp player Sugar Ray Norcia. His vocals are terrific.Norcia's rendition of Percy Mayfield's "Danger Zone" is .... and I can't believe I'm saying this ... even better -- more soulful than Ray Charles' version. And Charles, in my opinion is about as close to "God" as a Soulman can get!!Here, "Danger Zone" is THE PERFECT song. The arrangement is the best, done at a PERFECT tempo, sung perfectly. It opens with an unbelievable Bari-Sax solo that is the knife that plunges deep into your heart. Not an easy task with a BARI! Making things worse (or better), Rich Latalle's Alto Sax solo finishes you off by twisting that knife in deeper again, and again. But, somehow, Norcia's vocals are so smooth -- you'll keep comin' back for more! It hurts so good!!There's a lot more to this CD too -- but, this review would be too long if I continued to describe.This CD is definately worth getting, even if your an old Roomful purist."
One of the great Boston area blues bands at its best

"This is a great CD, lots of terrific mainstream blues with plenty of swing thrown in so you can dance to it! I'm ordinarily not a big fan of horn sections, but there's no way you can't love this if you're a blues fan."
Fabulous music

"Blues, swing and rock 'n' roll combine for an unbeatable CD. I have to be careful when playing this on the car stereo--I won't hear an ambulance siren even if it's right next to me! "Blind love," "Turn it on, turn it up," "If you know it" and "Marie, Marie" are my favorites because they best feature Sugar Ray Norcia's stunning voice. This CD is great fun. Don't hesitate to buy it."
