Presents The Legendary Rhythm & Blues Revue

Tommy Castro Presents The Legendary Rhythm & Blues Revue – Live! is a white-hot collection of the highest highlights from the Revue’s recent live performances. In addition to Castro’s stellar fretwork and blue-eyed soul vocals, the album features Alligator Records label-mates Rick Estrin, Janiva Magness and Michael “Iron Man” Burks, along with Debbie Davies, Theodis Ealey, Sista Monica Parker, Joe Louis Walker and the 2008 International Blues Challenge Award winners Trampled Under Foot.

The Legendary Rhythm & Blues Revue’s line-up—featuring Tommy and his band with special guests from all over the blues map—is among the most crowd-pleasing live music experiences around. The energy, excitement, and anything-can-happen, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants jamming brings crowds to their feet night after night. The love and respect between the musicians —and the audience—makes for a very special event.

Performing on the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise is like going to blues school for a guy like me. I feel I still have a lot to learn and I get chance to see a lot of great talent in a short time on the Cruise. Taking the Revue on the road allows me to spend a little more time with some of my favorite players. We play, jam, tell stories and share our experiences as we roll around the country in my funky old bus. Every one of my co-stars on this record has inspired me more than they know. I'm very grateful for their participation on this release.

If you love live music, you're going to love this record.
