Album Notes

The Roger Girke Band's new CD "My Baby Loves That Stuff" on Teletone Records features 11 tracks (10 are original) covering lots of musical ground - Delta, Chicago Blues and New Orleans Funk

Based in Wilmington, Delaware, the band has been building a name for itself playing blues venues and festivals in the north-east United States for the past five years. Their first Teletone CD "Roger Girke and The Funky Twisters - We Got The Funky Blues" received rave reviews in major publications across the country and this latest release further cements the band's artistry. Here is a sampling of recent reviews of "My Baby Loves That Stuff":

"A nice mix of Chicago and Delta blues and some New Orleans funk....Serious scorching vocals and blues guitar" - Peter "Blewzzman" Lauro,

"Prime guitar-fuelled blues...danceable shuffles and slow-burning grooves....These guys are definitely worthy of national attention" - Music City Blues Bluesletter, Nashville, Tennessee

.....a funkier bunch would be hard to find......(Roger's) vocal abilities are refreshingly powerful & expressive...they deserve wider recognition indeed. - Judge Jones, Blues Freepress #20, UK

The group boasts a resume of recording and performing credits that will impress the most devout blues fans. Their second album features no covers aside from Fats Domino's "All By Myself." from New Orleans R&B to straight-up Chicago blues. - Out and About Magazine, January 2005

.....Their new disc, My Baby Loves That Stuff, includes just one cover (Fat's Domino's "All By Myself") among a set of smart self-penned songs. Girke's vocals are better than credible, the recording is clean, and arrangements are well-thought-out. Blues Revue, Apr/May 2005

This is as radio-ready as any submission we've good as any that you're likely to hear over the airwaves in this genre.....certainly deserves a larger audience. - Recording Magazine, 2005

...plenty of serious blues....with Roger on soulful vocals blues shuffles aplenty. "Daddy" is a heartfelt tribute to departed parent contained in a wee wee hours, south side Chicago slow blues, slow burn musical accomplished set. Blues in Britain, Vol 1, Issue 30
