In 2011, after more than 20 years of intense gigging and recording, Chris Robinson set off to shape something new, a fresh rock mythology, a breathing kaleidoscopic thing stuffed with chooglin soul, bedrock boogie and shuffling wisdom birthed in intimate clubs and amongst the tall trees of the Golden State and eventually taken nationwide as the Chris Robinson Brotherhood evolved. What began as an experiment without expectations turned into a 118-show journey for Robinson (lead vocals, guitar), Neal Casal (guitar, vocals), Adam MacDougall (keys, vocals), George Sluppick (drums) and Mark Dutton (bass, vocals) that surprised these seasoned pros as music of unshakeable solidity and exuberant reach poured out of them, a New Cosmic California sound with tendrils reaching to the original Fillmore West, Topanga Canyon and outwards towards far horizons. The music of the Chris Robinson Brotherhood finds its fruition on their studio debut album Big Moon Ritual, due out June 4th via Silver Arrow/Megaforce Records, to be followed by companion album The Magic Door in September.

I actually had this CD sitting on my computer table for embarrassingly too long before I played it. It is a huge mistake on my part I did not play this earlier.
This is a very consistent collection of some great songs that deserves your attention.
I found though that after a few listens Chris Robinson's voice was not for me. The music is nothing special either. All it did was make me want to play early Grateful Dead.
The albums cover has a magnificent 70s style look to it with a grand canyon looking floor leading up into an arch that explodes into the cosmic night sky.
Kinda looks like the front of a spacecraft that your floating on whilst soaking in the beautiful music that surrounds you.
The album begins with tulsa yesterday a mellow country blues number that flows from a trickle into a river of sounds that inspire your soul with admiration for this band.
Track two Rosalee is an upbeat scooby-Doo hug a hippie kool & the gang adventure(Is the air gettin thinner?or are we gettin high).Star or Stone is one of the best songs ive heard this century,just perfect,a band truly glowing with inspired music.Tomorrow Blues continues the vibe with Adam MacDougall's keyboard wizardry (as it says on the back of the album) creating an atmosphere of pure hippie gold its actually possibly my favourite keyboard solo ever!
Track five Refelections on a broken mirror is a heartbreaking classic.
Beware,oh take care & one hundred days of rain bring the album to a close & this listener was inspired & touched by the brilliance of this debut Brotherhood album.
Chris Robinson is a genius & he just gets better & better like a fine wine whether your a fan of the black crowes or not you need to purchase this album it is stunning.
Hats off to Neal Casal's touching,brilliant guitar work & George Sluppicks sublime drumming too.
Im so excited for there 2nd album in september but for now i advise you to put Big Moon Ritual onto your stereo open some fine wine sit back & be inspired.
it's a "trip" down memory lane, always great to listen to music laid back.
First new offering from Robinson since "Before the Frost" & defiantly carrying on, where he left off with a nice live, laid back feel to the record.
I loved the album from the very first time I listened to it, but wanted to live with the record for a while, just to make sure my option wasn't clouded by my love of Robinson's music. It's not!
I think it's the best of his solo offerings & really Strong vocals.
You may also wish to check out "Howlin Rain" who are another band on the same cosmic trip.
