Today in Music History:
In 1962, Born on this day, Garth Brooks, country singer, (1991 US No.1 album 'Ropin' The Wind' spent 70 weeks on the US chart. Biggest selling artist of the 90's with over 60 million sales).
In the bland and white world of the love ‘em and leave ‘em Big Music Business, there’s something very colorful and endearing that showed up in my inbox the other day. Satisfaction is the feeling knowing there is a band like Ride The Boogie around. From the unforgettable tales about their entourage of fictional friends and groupies, to the melodious grooves, this group of individuals is quite like-able. This simple yet sophisticated orchestra are true to their art as musicians as they are true to each other as friends, who fortunately met as a result of their prior musical endeavors and who enjoy each other’s company as much as they like writing and playing their inventive music together.
One of the perks of Good Rockin' is being able to preview albums by new artists such as Ride the Boogie and bring them to the attention of my readers. While not earh shattering I have found that I very much enjoyed listening to this album and deem these guys worth the while to check out.
