Ladies and Gentlemen: the Brotherhood are in the building. The date is October 24th, 2012. The place is the Crossroads Festival in Bonn, Germany. And the vibe is pure electricity, as modern rock's musical dream-team tear it up for the legendary Rockpalast TV show. It's surely no coincidence that the Royal Southern Brotherhood kick off their set that night with Fired Up! In the words of that song's chorus, Devon Allman, Cyril Neville, Mike Zito, Charlie Wooton and Yonrico Scott are undoubtedly "fired up and ready to go" Released in November 2013, this new CD/DVD set takes listeners along for the ride, fusing a blistering Brotherhood set with the pin-sharp sound and production values you've come to expect from Ruf Records' celebrated Songs From The Road series. Past releases have included everyone from Jeff Healey to Luther Allison and now the spotlight turns on the southern supergroup who have lit up the post-millennial scene. It's hard to imagine a band more deserving of the live-album treatment. If there was chemistry afoot when the five members first convened in New Orleans over the summer of 2010, then it's only been strengthened by the self-titled debut album that followed in 2012, and the subsequent world tour that has seen RSB raise the roof across twenty-plus countries.
"This so-called US Supergroup are quite simply, one of the most exciting live bands on the blues circuit and festival scene across the USA and Europe right now bar none. OK, they have some famous surnames peppered across the line-up, but just because you may have Royal genes does not guarantee that the talent was passed down a generation. Well in the case of Devon ALLMAN and Cyril NEVILLE, it most certainly was. Add to those dynasties, the audacious talents of Mike Zito, Charlie Wooton and one of the best drummers I have ever seen/heard; Yonrico Scott, and you have a blindingly great line-up that makes up a blindingly great band" --Simon Redley Blues and Soul

I won't try to analyse individual tracks. Each one has a character of it's own and each track can stand up on it's own. No "fillers" here. Picture an Allman Brothers Band with twin guitars, but without keyboards and where each of the five musicians sing, and you have a close comparison.
You will want to listen and watch over and over.
We saw them again, this time with the wonderful Samantha Fish along as well, at Under the Bridge last month (November 2013).
The combination of powerful songs, both self-penned and covers ('Fire on the Mountain' is to die for), excellent sound and sheer talent in all departments (I have long been a fan of Messrs. Scott and Zito, and Charlie Wooton on bass was a revelation for me, what a star!) makes for a superb live concert experience. Electric in every sense of the word.
This superb little collection really recreates the excitement of a live RSB gig. The sound production on both the cd and the dvd is sumptuous, it really captures the spirit of this amazing band.
If you know RSB's music, buying this is a no-brainer.
If you don't know their music, start here. This is one of those bands that just has to be experienced live, and this is as good an introduction as anyone could wish for without actually being there.

They are good on record but better live as I can honestly say having seen them live twice and having both their studio cd's plus their solo material. Read morePublished 24 months ago by A. ROGERS
