Live At The Ramblin' Man Fair
Order now! The first 300 will receive an autographed copy.
From the opening crunch of "Big Boss Man" to a thunderous take on The Beatles' "Don't Let Me Down," Live At The Ramblin’ Man Fair packs an adrenaline-fueled punch as the Headhunters revel in the power of roadhouse rock and blues. And the fun continues on three bonus studio tracks, newly discovered takes from the sessions with Rock & Roll Hall of Fame pianist Johnnie Johnson that produced the 2015 gem Meet Me In Bluesland.
