Album Notes
"Clevelanders Matthew 'Cadillac' Cooper and Curtis 'King' Kovach are blazing an R&B trail through Asia. There's a lowdown, nitty-gritty, boogie-woogie, honky-tonk vibe working its mojo from Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam to Shanghai in China, thanks to two ramblin' blues guitarists from the Rock and Roll Capital of the World." - Chris Evans, CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER

"Two sons of the Rock 'n' Roll Capital of the World - Matthew "Cadillac" Cooper and Curtis "King" Kovach - are keeping it funky in the Far East." - CLEVALAND PLAIN DEALER, Dec 12 2004

"Meet Me In Harlem" was nominated for "Vocal Jazz Song of the Year" - Just Plain Folks 2004 Music Award Nominations


Matthew "Cadillac" Cooper, the BIG BOY OF THE BLUES, is truly an amazing human being. When playing "live" he makes heads turn and jaws drop. When playing in the studio, his raw talent as a singer and guitar player shine through like magic. He is the only musician I have shared the stage with that made the entire band experience a simultaneous high with all of us smiling from ear to ear like children - by focusing ever ounce of his 350 pounds on one thing - the musical experience!

One night stands out in my memory... Matt, who plays without a pick, was playing so intensely, plucking strings right off the guitar, that his fingertips started bleeding profusely. The pickguard of my Telecaster turned red. Matt kept playing, with bloody fingers and painful passion, making it one of the most intense musical moments most of us had ever felt.

On this CD we have offered 17 of Matt's studio recordings, including 6 original tracks, which display his sheer energy and emotion, through which one can sit back and enjoy, I believe, one of the finest human voices I have ever heard.

If you have the chance, I cannot recommend highly enough an evening watching Matt live. Seeing is believing.

Ladies and Gentlemen, presenting Matthew "Cadillac" Cooper. Enjoy!

HEY!!! If you like this CD - you must check out our first CD - "Curtis King Band LIVE - Caught With Our Pants Down", also featuring Matt on 3 killer live tracks! (Hey Joe, Tbone shuffle, and Stormy Monday!)

Mike Signorelli

Powerful and unique CD.
Great CD, providing powerful music and new twists to old favorites. Interesting piano, great horns, and epic guitar playing make this a must have album.

Rebecca Weiner

Way Fun!!!
This is a wailin', howlin', good-time, bad-man blues album that will keep you rocking. The Big Boy Rules!

Michael Barndt

Incredible...excellent disc worth adding to any collection!
Matthew Caddillac Cooper's "Here I come with the blues" is an amazing disc. His renditions of the Hendrix classics Hey Joe & Little Wing are some of the best I have ever heard(those two songs make the disc worth buying alone). Cadillac's voice and guitar licks are on par with the best.

Fred Smith

Great CD; awesome guitar player.
Mathew "Cadillac" Cooper has it going. He is a true blues man whose playing and singing reflect a soulful sound that makes you close your eyes and take it all. My son has a blues band and I bought a copy for him, hoping he'd do Matthew's version of Hey Joe; great song, great version. Hope Matthew puts out more blues CDs. I'll definitely buy!

Jimmy Bill Smith

I am blown away by the voice and Guitar of Matthew Cooper
Two tracks on this CD make it all worth while. The voice and
guitar of Matthew "Cadillac" Cooper and the terrific work of
the Curtis King band make the blues rock and even vibrate.
Just listen to this group of very talented musicians do a
number on "Mustang Sally" and "Jailhouse Rock". The real
find on the disk may be "Need Your Love So Bad", one of
Cooper's best vocals. It will take you back to your high
school dance with your first true love. Holding her and
rocking back and forth in the darkened gymnasium.

Enjoyable Blues music by young professional musicians,
The music is fun and so are the memories

J Emmerstein

Classy Blues CD - 5 star vocals and guitar, with some great harp playing
I've seen Matt Cooper (vocals and guitar) "live" in Shanghai, and he absolutely rocks the house. He's a big guy, and the energy that he emits during a live show blows people away.

I've never seen him with the band that he recorded with on this CD, and was really pleasantly surprised to hear such a tight band. Killer harp playing on a few of the tracks (especially Sweet Home Chicago - NICE) and Going Down. Very different from the average harp playing you hear on blues CDs (a la Sonny Boy Williamson)... much more in-your-face electric Junior Wells style!

Overall, excellent sound quality, rockin band, and... well, Matt Cooper, who is already a bit of a legend out here in Asia.
