I think anyone who has ever enjoyed a Dylan song will find something special here.
L. L. Bruns
He moves into one of the simplest songs, Take that Ride one of his most distinctly country songs, talking about perhaps fear or just an honest look at his life.
Erik Berg Backrow King
Thankfully there are still a few like RB who can still touch a person's soul with his music, an art that's fading fast.

R.B is a near-legend here in Knoxville. Take that Ride is filled with images of moonshine runnin', fist-fightin' and hard-drinkin' down in the mountain hollers. R.B.'s take on Robert Mitchum's Ballad of Thunder Road puts you in a hopped-up Plymouth sliding around a dirt road, one step in front of the law. Just like O'Hanlon, I'll take tobacco in my tea.

R.B. sings stories like few folks who are alive today. This is a CD to treasure and send to all who you love as a dandy gift. For a real treat, track down his limited-release cassette "Local-Man", which features one of the finest back-up bands ever.

RB Morris carries the heart and soul of Tennesse that was bestowed upon him by his roots. His songs convey that past as they stand and deliver as the listener sits/stands and takes notice. His lyrics compare to some of the greats being clever, whitty but never too smart that the listener gets shut out. There's nothing trite about RB Morris either. Even as he touches on Gospel, Rockabilly, Traditional Folk and Irish, Ballads and Rockers it's all a sound his own. Even with a song like "They Say There's A Time" which seques nicely to a song like Otis Redding's "I've Been Loving You Too Long" or the swampy feel of "Hell on a Poor Boy" that immediately brings to mind Dylan's "Everything is Broken" without the lush Lanois production. With guitarist Kenny Vaughn who's a real firecracker, a rhythm section that never overdoes it, keeping it simple but never simple minded, always knwoing what's necessary or not for each song. The band plays as a unit, a trait all too rare these days. Thankfully there are still a few like RB who can still touch a person's soul with his music, an art that's fading fast. So if you like your music with a pulse then give this CD or his sophmore release "Zeke & The Wheel" a listen, you won't to regret and you just might learn a thing or two about life and how to live it.

R B Morris has made a perfect little jewel with this album, Take That Ride.
I have seen him perform many times in Knoxville, TN, and heard many of these songs live at local performances before this album was released.
His songwriting is poetry, evocative of place and brings you into the song in a personal way. The band is tight, the music just the right amount of country, with R B's ability to ride the fence between rock and folk.
I think anyone who has ever enjoyed a Dylan song will find something special here.

Format: Audio CD
His sound is Tom Petty without the harder rock, Bob Dylan without the simplicity and Mark Knopfler without the raging electric guitar. His voice is Bob Dylan's without the nasal grit, Neil Young's although a little lower and Gordon Lightfoot's without being so aloof. Essentially RB Morris's sound is a chameleon and its only congruence is his down to earth voice, his rare sound and his honest lyrics.

Every song is a new exploration from the opening rock song, World Owes Me to the raw country song Take that Ride into the unique philosophical song Bottom of the Big Black Hull. RB Morris is an incredible singer and one of the best, unrecognized songwriters but not nearly a singer/songwriter with his beautiful music compositions.

Basically there is something in this CD for everyone. World Owes Me is a song to dance to, to sing along to, to drive to. It's free and rocking but RB Morris accompanies with it his words about life: 'I've been working and I've been giving-The world owes me, some kind of living'. But he doesn't lose a beat with great wordplay: 'No I ain't no Robin Hood - But I ain't no Mack the Knife - Hey this ain't no livelihood - This is just a way of life.'.

'Ridin' with O'Hanlon' is a song about intellectual freedom that doesn't feel a bit lost or bogged down by a philosophy, even reflecting on it in his first few lines: 'I was riding with O'Hanlon in those wild and heady days.' From RB Morris' experience with the beatniks he drew a great sense of poetry and literature but didn't get lost in their mindset.

The third song, 'They say there's a Time'. Is like a beautifully sung poem put to great music.
