Product Description

This is Roy Rogers' first ever live CD. Drawing on inspiration and material from a career that spans decades of performing, Roy Rogers is considered one of the world's leading practitioners of modern slide guitar. This is a Bandlink Enhanced CD which enables you to access new and exclusive Roy Rogers content - instant tour dates, news alerts, bonus music tracks, live video footage and direct chats with the Roy.

Nominated for 8 Grammys for his production and performing work in the recording industry, Rogers has been immersed in the blues and roots scene and performing professionally since the ripe age of 13. This longtime Northern California resident picked up a nomination for the prestigious W.C. Handy Award in the Best Instrumentalist Guitar category for his release Slideways which hit #3 on the Billboard Blues chart. In addition, Rogers' recently co-wrote the song Gnawin' On It on Bonnie Raitt's Silver Lining, for which she was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Female Rock Vocal Performance category. Rogers is also featured on Sierra Center Stage 1, the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company-sponsored television series which seeks to bring exposure to underexposed American Roots and World musicians.

This CD includes special guest performances by pianist Phil Aaberg, harmonica wizard Norton Buffalo, vocalist Shana Morrison and fiddler Tom Rigney. 'I am first and foremost a performer and I have been playing with these players for a long time. It's great to lay it down and not have to bother with the added textures of studio polish - but keep it as gritty and fresh as possible. I also wanted to capture the band at this moment in time and I think we did that,' adds Rogers.


Many guitarists dabble in slide guitar, but the number of modern masters can probably be counted on one hand. Roy Rogers is surely one of them. --Guitar Player Magazine

Format: Audio CD
I've always been an admirer of Roy Rogers - and I love slide guitar blues - a few of the current best purveyors being Johnny Winter, Sonny Landreth, Rory Block, John Mooney, Dave Hole, and Robert Randolph (pedal steel). Previously, some of Rogers' studio work has been a bit sterile, and sometimes his vocals can be wearing. However, in this case, Roy Rogers has set the standard in the warm, live setting of the Sierra Nevada Brewery "Big Room". All of the interaction with his longtime partner, Norton Buffalo, and the Delta Rhythm Kings, and the audience getting into it, make for an exciting listen. His slide guitar really shimmers and shakes, and all of the cuts (except for one), which were previously recorded on his other albums, really benefit from this live presentation. The recording quality itself is excellent. If you see this album - Get It!

An absolute great CD - He does a little different version of the blues but does a fantastic job. Saw him live at the Santa Fe in Las Vegas years ago - this CD is just a good, and the price was great.
