Let It Roll
Raging Horse Records (2003)
By Spring 2003 The Mustangs had enough of their own material to debut an album of original songs. The result? Let It Roll remains a landmark in The Band's career and a highly sought after gem amongst blues aficionados. Where many bands are lucky to have one good songwriter, The Mustangs have four.
Spreading their wings to cover a huge range of blues styles from Texas to country to swing to Chicago and back again, every track on Let It Roll is a delight, with The Band's uncanny ear for rhythm and melody never deserting them.
Among the numerous highlights are the slow burners I See Red and In Need of You, but these sit alarmingly well alongside the driving r'n'b of Soft Top Down, No Time for the Blues and the title track. Let it Roll has been in the CD Wow unsigned top 10 chart for more than two years.
Almost a microcosm of The Band's dynamic live show with its sonic highs and lows, both The Band's fans and blues critics gave the album a red hot reception, citing the sheer breadth of songwriting on display as a key factor in setting The Band apart from their contemporaries. A must-have.
