Roomful of Blues – Raisin' a Ruckus (2007)

“What? You’ve never head any Roomful of Blues?” I tell you, I’ve asked that question far too many times. They’ve gone through many lineup changes through the years, and their list of alumni includes Duke Robillard, Ron Levy, Sugar Ray Norcia, and Ronnie Earl. Why they’re not more well known is beyond me. If you’re looking for some horn-based blues that’ll induce random motions of a particular body part (as Hawkeye Pierce used to say, “The back of my front”), then this band is for you. I’ve seen ’em live and they do indeed raise a ruckus.

[ONE TRACK MIND: Duke Robillard talks about tunes from ‘Low Down and Tore Up,’ memorable dates with Herb Ellis and Tom Waits — and his lasting passion for Chuck Berry.]
