Editorial Reviews

This release -- Roy's first studio recording with his band, The Delta Rhythm Kings, in seven years -- marks his reunion with Blind Pig, the label that issued Rogers' highly regarded early recordings in the late 1980's. Since then he's gone on to worldwide acclaim as one of the best slide guitar players around, garnered multiple Grammy nominations for his work as a producer for John Lee Hooker and Ramblin' Jack Elliott, and received numerous accolades for songwriting and his work on movie soundtracks and television.
"I really wanted Split Decision to have an edge to it soundwise," says Rogers. "My influences are from all over the map - all kinds of roots music, to jazz, and even other music from around the world. You can certainly hear many of those influences on the recording. I love combining different elements on a recording, but ultimately it is about 'the feel' of a total record which represents that moment in time captured. I hope that shines through in a positive way for people. Thanks for listening."

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Roy at his best September 19, 2009
Format:Audio CD
You just can't hang a one-star rating on a Roy Rogers album because you don't like his voice. It's just not done. It's like giving Pink Floyd one star because of danceability. It's silly.
R R fans, you know him, you love him. Buy the disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER SOLID OUTING March 28, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Roy Rogers has benn one of my favorite slide guitarists for quite some time now. With over 12 cd's in my collection by him, he never disappoints since with each new cd Roy comes up with solid material. This cd is no exception. My favorite selections are " Patron saint of pain", " I would undo anything", " Holy Ghost Moan and " Bitter Rain which to me underlies the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina on New Orleans. His singing and guitar work are first rate and his song selection is impeccable. In all a very praise worthy cd with excellent sound quality.

1.0 out of 5 stars Singing Masks Talent September 17, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Bought it in response to a recent exposure to Roy's outstanding instrumental skills. Regretfully, in this album, they were smothered by his mediocre singing.
