Hook, Line & Sinker
A dozen hand-picked songs from Little Richard, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, Amoz Milburn, Floyd Dixon and more, all given the swinging, stinging Roomful treatment. Exuberant soul-shout vocals, razor-sharp guitar work, impeccable ensemble horn playing and a skin-tight rhythm section all come together on a boisterous, satisfying new RoB album. "Marvelous wall-to-wall grooves, wicked guitar work and brassy horns...things never stop swinging" -- USA TODAY
