ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The second installment of new originals from Soul Food!

We always record live, and on our first album two of the tracks were recorded with all of us in the same room. In other words, No Separation, No Overdubs - the engineer, Dave Schwartz, said No Way! But we stuck to our guns, and we liked the feel of those two tracks the best. For our second recording, "Another Round", we decided that the WHOLE THING should be done that way.
So, with Dave's help, what you hear is what you get...this CD sounds exactly the way the band sounds live. Even the vocals were recorded in the same room at the same time. We believe this batch of songs is even better than the first, so if you picked up a copy of "Soul Food", here is Another Round!

(features a bonus video clip, live in the studio.)

We currently have 5 new originals getting ready to be cooked up in the studio... stay tuned...

Another Round is a must-have in any modern blues collection
It’s usually not a difficult decision. You wanna Another Round? Sure, why not. Hell yeah!

Another Round is a must-have in any modern blues collection.

For the uninitiated, Soul Food offers up classic-style blues synthesized with funk, R&B and other stuff. Roots, genuine style, down-home cooking. They give due deference to the elder states-folk of the craft, but apply their fresh and innovative signatures. Blues chroniclers of a new age. They’re a group of musicians with lots of skills and buckets of heart and soul. When you hear them you realize that they have the talent to be playing anything they want, and when you listen for awhile you realize that they are playing exactly what they love.

With Another Round, their second disc, the band’s gestalt has solidified and their lyrics have matured. Plus, this disc is recorded 100% LIVE! NO OVERDUBS! Just what you want in raunchy, rockin’ blues. It sounds so damn good you can smell the cigarette smoke and taste the whiskey.

A large part of the deep pleasure of Soul Food’s music is the nuanced talent that each bandmember brings to the mix. Geoff’s vocals and harp range from angelic to demonic (and he can sound like a one-man horns section). Stacey on bass plays and sings as good as she looks – a pretty mean feat considering the 100% live no overdub! Sanjay personifies the band’s blend of genres and unrequited passion; his guitar work is well-deserving of the accolades in the band’s reviews. And like any great drummer, Jeff is the guiding hand and puts the soul in Soul Food – it’s his beat that keeps you dancing. Together, they are so damn tight, and so damn loose.

The disc features: Recipe Du Juor, the introductory dish that exemplifies the band’s abilities to blends styles and to J-A-M; Broken Brush, one of many highlighting Geoff’s tremendous vocal range and an awesome harp solo; and Trash, a feel-good tune, dreamy, roll off the table ballad, with not-just-suggestive-but-demanding lyrics sung by a dirty, dirty girl. Michelin Man, is funky and funny with second helpings of entendres, and you can hear in the band;s energy that they are doing what they love. Good Time is a blues lament that’s as catchy as a Top 40 bubble-gum snap. Plus, it’s sung by Sanjay. Truth really is stranger than fiction. Listen to New Orleans and ‘nuff said. This song shows where the band’s heart and spirit comes from, the kind of spirit that allows a song this good to come from a group of kids paying homage to the creations of generations past. The 100%-live-no-overdubs is especially satisfying here. Close your eyes, you’ll swear you’re on Bourbon Street, two-drink minimum per set, you need to order Another Round. Red Wine is a tribute to the band’s versatility, a blue-grassy country honk. Yee-haw! The lyrics are witty and wise and the song is beautifully sung in three parts by Geoff, Stacey and Sanjay. Don’t Take Much is another Sanjay classic with great harp and guitar solos over a groovy feel from the rhythm section, kicking it back on their own time. The term ‘blues classic’ is pretty strong, but play Dedication, close your eyes, listen to the opening guitar riff, hear Stacey start to sing and PROVE ME WRONG! At any level, the song is bright and inspirational and celebrational; at deeper levels, it has personal significance (when you figure out what it’s about it brings tears to your eyes). Fittingly, the band uncovered and does great justice to Ike Turner’s funky jewel Garbage Man. And Walk All Over Me is a hard-core ramble that would make Muddy Waters proud. The disc closes fittingly with Every Day, a lazy, catchy diddy that is a tribute to all things the blues.

When it comes to Soul Food it’s not too hard a decision. Order Another Round!
