Ooops! Sorry. '(You're Stuck With A) Rock and Roll Daddy' is the 1st of 13 songs. Very nice horn work must be overdubbed. There's only 1 trombone and 1 trumpet listed, and I hear a whole section back there. I dig the arrangement more than the topic of this song, and for some reason the lead vocal sticks out a bit much because possibly the guy's too white? No, that's wrong of me to say. But let's say that a Joe Cocker throat would sound real good in front of a big band or more old fashioned jazz group. The vocals are clear, and oh well, forget it. Doesn't matter. 'Cold Harbor' works better because it's got a bit of the dixie behind it, and I dig the chorus chorus a nice little story song.
Cd is put together nicely, and mixed clean and clear. I bet they'd be a better live act where they can get a little wilder, a little more scruffed up, and show off their fleas.
