ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In 1998 Adam Leland(ex-Stonesouls) released a solo album. While touring to promote it, Adam’s wife Stephanie acted as road manager. She was soon demoted to drummer. Returning home, the group played pubs as the A-Sides (and briefly in Memphis as Sore Thumbs). They shared stages with the Cynics, 45’s, Black Lips, the Dickies, and Jason Ringenberg, as well as several more famous and impressive names which I can’t list because the group is so humble they will only allow me to drop five names. The group also released four vinyl 45rpm singles. Two of Adam and Stephanie’s songs are featured in the 2007 cult horror film “The Blood Shed.”

Changing their name to Rocksploitation, the group cut an EP at Sun Studios in Memphis (wich is included as the last 6 songs of this CD). They are now yours to enjoy, and as a completely unbiased observer, I can safely say without fear of hyperbole, that these tracks make up the greatest recording of all time.

Great Disc!
Rocksploitation are a band that plays at my favorite local pub in Atlanta. They were called The A-sides but recently changed their name and made this cd. The CD captures the sound of their live show with a 2nd guitar added in for good measure. Highlights are the driving "Be Somebody" the Stonesy "Take A Beating" and Dave Edmunds meets Georgia Satellies "No Matter What I Gotta Do". The 16 songs are just over 1/2 hour, but that just allows you to play it over again.

If you like The Ramones, The Rolling Stones, 60's Nuggets like The Standells and Thee Count Five, The Replacements, BoDiddley, The Stooges you will like Rocksploitation.

The best $10 you can ever spend!
High energy, toe-tappin, sonic sounds that will remind you of when music invoked feelings from you instead of just assaulting your eardrums like a lot of the bands out there today do! Rocksploitation sounds like Chuck Berry got in a fight with the Ramones and what came out was some beautiful, beautiful music. You will want to listen to this album over and over again until you know every word, just so you can sing along! #4 Be Somebody got stuck in my head after the first time I heard it (in a good way) GO buy this record today, I did and I can't get enough!

I've known/been going to see Adam & Stephanie for years & they just keep getting better & better! This is basic rock & roll at its most rollicking & enthusiastic. Keep up the great work!

Quick. Quick. Rock.
If you are a fan of stripped down rock and tunes that are less than 3 minutes long, please purchase this record. I listened to this once and was humming the tunes the next day. Catchy, fun. Zero pretention. Good Time, Rock and Roll!

Stomp & Stammer Review
Formery known as The A-Sides, Atlanta's Rocksploitation might as well have called themselves The Lelands since the combo includes guitarist / singer Adam Leland, his wife Stephanie on drums and brother Eric on bass. Eric also produced their debut CD a rollicking self-titled wallop, none whose 16 songs break the two-and-a-half minute mark. The group hits on all sorts of stripped-down snarly/hiccuping garage rock inputs but generally falls somewhere between Buddy Holly and the Trashmen.

Rockin' Roots Rock
This is Adam & Steph at their best! Still raw, stripped down and full of energy but with some cool new songs and a 'tish more production.
