ROBERT RANDOLPH & THE FAMILY BAND

When Robert Randolph talks about his new album, Lickety Split, a few words come up over and over—"joy," "freedom," "energy." Which is no surprise, really, because those are the same things that immediately spring into a listener's mind when these twelve tracks from the virtuoso pedal steel guitarist and his ...

Customer Reviews

One of the best live albums I've ever heard!
Leo Kerr
Marcus Randolph's rock solid foundations on the drums lay the groove out, and coupled with Danyel Morgan's super funky bass work forms an increadibly tight pocket.
Allen P. Jackson
I saw Robert Randolph & The Family Band in New Orleans...and was utterly blown away.

Robert Randolph received his education on the pedal steel guitar at a House Of God church in Orange, New Jersey. The origins of that church date back to the early 1900's, and in the 1930's those congregations developed the use of the pedal and lap steel guitar as an instrument for worship services in lieu of the much more expensive, though more traditional organ. Randolph's family encouraged Robert to learn the instrument at age 15, but it wasn't until he was 17 that his interest in mastering the pedal steel intensified, and ultimately engulfed his life.

Randolph plays the finest pedal steel guitar I've ever had the pleasure of hearing, and his funky jam-rock approach on 'Live At the Wetlands' also whets my appetite. This recording was made shortly prior to the closing of The Wetlands venue four days after the Twin Towers came down in New York City. For thirteen years what was once an urban warehouse had served double-duty as a center for environmental activism as well as a concert venue for up-and-coming artists. It's clear from the host's introduction and the reaction of the crowd to Randolph's set that the Family Band had become something of a fixture at the 500-seat capacity Wetlands, and that Randloph possessed a special reverence for that venue as well.

My two favorite tracks on the disc are the thirteen minute opener, a rollicking instrumental titled 'Ted's Jam', written by Randolph (as are all the tracks on the disc, save the cover of Slim Harpo's 'Shake Your Hips'), but inspired by pedal steel legend Ted Beard (ironically, Randolph's father wed the daughter of Ted Beard, establishing the connection), and the next to last track, the similarly extended boogie number, 'I Don't Know What You Come To Do'.

My husband and I had never heard of Robert Randolph before watching him on the Crossroads Guitar Festival on our local PBS station. We watched in awe.... this young man makes the steel guitar sing in a way most regular guitar players can't begin to master. Nobodys fingers should be able to move that fast! We chose this CD because it was done live, and thought it would show his artistic freedom to soar to unknown heights that wouldn't be captured in the studio. He didn't let us down. He obviously loves what does and as a listener you can't help but be caught up in it. I may not know all the "correct" musical qualities to look / listen for, but I do feel that if you want to hear one of the most talented, innovative young people around today, you owe it to yourself to invest in at least one of his CDs, and this is a good place to start.

Hi everyone. I'm an EC fan since 1967, and for me he can do no wrong. The man is an accomplished musician of the very highest order. I went to the EC 40-year celebration concert at the Manchester MEN Arena. Eric and the band were simply fabulous.
....Robert Randolph and his band were the support. OUCH!! WHERE THE HELL DID THESE GUYS COME FROM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!????????
Robert and his band simply blew everyone away!!! What an incredible experience. I've not been genuinely as excited about a band for many many years. Robert and the boys - thank you. It was an education in guitar virtuosity. I bought the 'Live at the Wetlands' CD immediately following the concert and have played a hole in it already. Word to the world audiences in 2004 - go and see EC you will NOT be disappointed! But the sheer joy of listening to Robert Randolph and the Family Band will completely frazzle your brain. This man & his band are going to be a huge stars - and the world better watch out & be ready for them! They are absolutely FABULOUS!!

Some may say they are trying to be like the Allman Brothers and I could care less. Bottom line, they can play. I literally get chills every time i listen to the cd and I've had it for about 3 years now. Word of advice, seem them live... I saw them open for OAR and they were incredible and then this summer at DMB robert randolph stopped by. Bothe shows were made much better by his presence

Remember how music used to be fun to listen to before the incursion of stance and attitude and angst shoved its way to the forefront during the musical hell of the `90s? Well, Robert Randolph makes music fun to listen to again, playing pedal steel like he was Vulcan hammering on his forge intently creating armor for Zeus.
"Live at the Wetlands" is a breathtaking live set is gritty and focused. This magical outing could not have been replicated or captured in a studio. The four-piece ensemble rocks the house with measured, joyous playing. Randolph tears it up on pedal steel like no one else and Ginty flat out wrings the Hammond organ for all its worth. Let's not forgot the crisp, solid drums and bass that anchor and propel each cut, holding the whole jam together.
If you aren't in motion by the time the finale Tears of Joy gets in high gear, then you are not conscious. Randolph and company ascend to another plane, and if you turn up the volume, they will bring you along for the joy ride.
If you liked "The Word" (and who didn't?), you will want to snatch this CD, too. Though there are only six tracks, this recording, like Streetwalker's excellent "Live at the BBC," should be judged on the quality not the quantity.
