News

March 11th this week marks the 45th anniversary of the release of this standard among "supergroups", one of the most highly anticipated releases considering each of the artists' ascendance in their careers at the time; CSN's breakthrough was a hit, and this follow-up, with the addition of Neil Young, was expected to be an even bigger one. And it was, on the charts, on Best Of lists, and in sales (7 million in the U.S. alone).

When you want a firey band that captures the gritty, swampy sound of North Florida blues, our go-to band is, without question, J.J. Grey & Mofro. On Ol' Glory, their fifth studio album, they bring in a little more of the Muscle Shoals soul sound, for a great blend of R&B and rock Grey refers to as their "Lochloosa" sound. There are some intriguing characters in the songs here, a number of whom share the common theme of overcoming temptation of various sorts; "Turn Loose" follows a junkie on her downward spiral; "Hold On Tight" celebrates the passion of married sex.
