5.0 out of 5 stars Louisiana gumbo cookin' up a treat!, 15 Jun. 2012
This review is from: The Royal Southern Brotherhood (Audio CD)
Must agree totally with John & Tramps about this album. Devon Allman's Honeytribe were good, really good, but with the RSB no one person has greater prominence than the rest, and boy, does it show. Such a stellar collection of musicians, with not an ego in sight. I have just returned from Biloxi, Mississippi, where I was fortunate enough to see RSB along with Walter Trout, Buddy Guy, Lonestar, Robert Randolph Band etc over a three day blues festival [$48 for a 3-day pass, UK promoters hang your heads] and can report back that RSB were just sooooooo good. Just like on the album, there was superb interplay between all of them and sharing vocal duties. Devon and Mike complement each other and the 'engine room' of Yonrico and Charlie [where has that bassman been hiding?] meld the whole thing together along with some lovely Latino/funk/soul keyboards from Cyril. The songs off the album have been stretched out to 8-10 minutes and could, over the months stretch out even further as the mood takes. I spoke to Devon and Charlie after the gig and they said they are doing a number of European venues in the fall of 2012, look out for them. Just to add, RSB followed on from Walter Trout and from my vantage point I saw the WTB checking out RSB from the sidelines, taking photos and grooving, [even Sammy was bopping!] They don't do that too often! Mutual admiration society. So, to finish, Buy the album and catch 'em live, you know it makes sense.

Ooops. Cyril Neville was on vocals/percussion, not vocal/keyboards. Too much sun!
