CD Reviews

GREAT DEBUT CD!

"RONNIE BAKER BROOKS, SON OF LEGENDARY LONNIE BROOKS (REAL LAST NAME BAKER) RELEASES HIS DEBUT CD ON THE INDEPENDENT LABEL--WATCHDOG RECORDS. GIVEN THE FACT THAT LONNIE RECORDS ON ALLIGATOR RECORDS AND SON RONNIE HAS PERFORMED ON SOME OF THOSE CD'S, YOU HAVE TO WONDER HOW ALLIGATOR LOST OUT ON THIS DEAL. IN ANY EVENT, ALL 12 TRACKS ARE ORIGINALS WRITTEN AND SUNG BY RONNIE BAKER BROOKS. RONNIE PERFORMS MANY OF THE TRACKS USING HIS JIMI HENDRIX SIGNATURE FENDER STRAT AND IF THAT WERE NOT ENOUGH TO LET YOU KNOW WHO HIS HEAVY INFLUENCE WAS, WAIT UNTIL YOU HEAR THAT UNMISTAKABLE HENDRIX SOUND ON "SHE'S A GOLDDIGGER". OTHER SONGS HINT AT STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN SUCH AS, "STUCK ON STUPID" AND SOME MAY EVEN HEAR A LITTLE ELVIN BISHOP THROWN IN SOME SONGS FOR GOOD MEASURE. RONNIE GETS HELP FROM DAD ON "MAKE THESE BLUES SURVIVE" AND FROM PRODUCER JELLYBEAN JOHNSON ON "MUST'VE BEEN BOUGHT". FOR A REAL TREAT CATCH RONNIE LIVE. HIS SHOWMANSHIP IS TOP NOTCH. AN EXCEPTIONAL DEBUT. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"

"The CD Golddigger is a labor of love and dedicated to Ronnie's fans. Also, the song titled "I'll See you Again" was writen to express his feeling and respect for recent loss of many Legendary Bluesmen and Women. His talent and professionism as an artist and musician is displayed throughout this CD and his new CD titled "Take Me Witcha" Which I think is great and an excellent choice.Further, you got to see Ronnie's new DVD recorded live at the Chord on Blues in St. Charles Illinois. Ronnie's performance
is a show stopper and stirs the depth of your soul with emotional and tantalizing blues mastering as only
Ronnie Baker Brooks can express. A sample (trailer) of the DVD is on his website."

"POWERFUL! IN INDIANAPOLIS, I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO CATCH RBB LIVE AT THE SLIPPERY NOODLE INN. SINCE THEN, I HAVE EAGERLY AWAITED THE FIRST RELEASE FROM THIS EXTREMELY TALENTED GENTLEMAN! NO DOUBT DESTINED TO BE A LEGEND LIKE HIS DAD, HIS RANGE OF VOCALS AND GUITAR ARE INCREDIBLE. THIS MAN PLAYS GUITAR LIKE NO OTHER! HE'S DONE AN AMAZING JOB COMPILING ALL THE BLUES LEGENDS THAT HE MUST HAVE LOOKED UP TO GROWING UP, INTO A SMOOTH AND UNIQUE SOUND ALL HIS OWN. FROM STEVIE RAY TO JOHN LEE HOOKER, RBB'S GOT IT ALL! OF COURSE TEAMING UP WITH HIS DAD ON "MAKE THESE BLUES SURVIVE" REALLY TOPPED OFF AN ALLREADY GREAT ALBUM! FROM THE BLUESEY "STUCK ON STUPID" TO A ROCKIN "MUST'VE BEEN BOUGHT"THIS ALBUM IS A MUST HAVE FOR EVERYBODY'S MUSIC COLLECTION. SO RARE TO BUY AN ALBUM AND REALLY ENJOY EVERY TRACK!"
