ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Rick Welter Band delivers a master class in touch and mood on I’m All Yours (Bluestopia Records), a survey of roots styles that avoids tired covers.This is music for a small club, just like the good old days. -- Tom Hyslop, Blues Revue magazine

Hailing from Albany New York and currently based out of Portland Oregon, Rick Welter spent some time in Chicago and the San Francisco Bay Area. He and his band have been giving a legion of fans heaping helpings of timeless “American Roots Music” for years. Over the course of his career he has played with such luminaries as Charles Musselwhite, Big Walter Horton, Mitch Woods, Junior Watson, John Nemeth, Paul Delay and many, many more. He has also appeared on numerous music festivals throughout the USA both as back-up guitarist/vocalist and as a headliner. This award winning R&B guitar man combines the raw energy of the Blues with the soulful feel of 50’s and 60’s R&B!

“The first time I saw Rick play I thought to myself this man has done his homework. This is a player!”---Curtis Salgado

"This is a band that sounds as fresh as any working today, maybe even more so than a good many of them. I’m All Yours is a disc that will be enjoyed for a long time to come. It just has that quirky, good-natured approach that never goes out of style."

Uniquely Soulful
"I'm All Yours" is uniquely soulful as only Rick Welter can be. I was hoping his recording would do justice to his live act and it has. Beautiful R&B with Welter's guitar and vocals giving a fresh, innovative approach. Great original songs and covers that are obscure gems all done to perfection. I was particularly taken with "I Had a Talk With My Baby" by Chicago soul artist Lou Pride. Thanks to Welter for introducing me to Lou Pride.

Rick Welter Band

I'm All Yours
Remember those cheesy surf movies of the 60s where out of nowhere there is a band on the beach who plays some really cool music that gets everybody up to dancing in their swim-suits? For some reason I can picture the Rick Welter Band being one of those cool outfits performing on the sand. Their music fits right into that danceable atmosphere, with its classic full-bodied guitar sound and grooving backbeat. If labels like Ace or Specialty, who released some of the finest R&B numbers of the 50s and 60s, were still going strong, they could make a living off of Rick’s calm, rich vocals and guitar tone. And they could’ve probably taken Rick’s new disc, I’m All Yours and placed tracks into the hands of deejays and right into the charts. It’s the type of music that is all about feeling good. Instantly likeable, it makes you want to shuffle your feet, snap your fingers and sway your body along with its rhythm. How can you possibly go wrong with that?



But it’s all about song selection. Rick knows what works well for his style and nails it home every time. Along with carefully chosen covers by the likes of Earl King, Jimmy Liggins, Lou Pride or Earl Hooker, Rick also penned four of the numbers himself and they fit the mold perfectly, be it funky, soulful or just plain jumpin’. Rick has his own flair and in his hands all of the covered songs sound like they were written just for him.

It’s also about having the right people working with you and Rick has a stellar crew along for the ride. Recorded on a mobile system at Duff’s Garage in Portland by longtime friend Dave Keefer during dates in March and October 2008, Rick is more than ably backed by the skillful Tom Royer on drums with bass duties split between John Neish and Steve Lindsey. Throw in harmonica ace Jim Wallace on a couple tracks as well as percussionist Bradly Scott and you’ve got yourself a winning combination that makes the music come to life, giving it that feel good sensation.

But though I have compared Rick Welter with music of the past, make no mistake he is no throwback in time. This is a band that sounds as fresh as any working today, maybe even more so than a good many of them. I’m All Yours is a disc that will be enjoyed for a long time to come. It just has that quirky, good-natured approach that never goes out of style.
