    Thanks for the link! "Together All The Time" was especially funky. Roscoe really gets it done- I've been fortunate enough to see him numerous times with Robben Ford and also with Eric Johnson.:)

    Wow. Roscoe has some excellent personnel on this.

    - Eric Johnson needs no introduction.

    - Malford Milligan is an outstanding vocalist, and, merely FWIW happens to be an albino black man and has a very interesting look. He was in a number of my finance classes at UT around 1990.

    - Kim Wilson, on harmonica, is the lead for the Fabulous Thunderbirds.

    - Omar Dykes leads up Omar and the Howlers

    - Mitch Watkins is a monster on guitar and mostly plays with Lyle Lovett these days.

    - Brannen Temple is a drum prodigy who came out of (I believe) LBJ High School right about the time I came out of Westwood in Austin.

    Worth checking out just on the names of the sidemen!

    Interestingly, the pictures on his site show a Fender RBV with a maple fretboard. I thought the maple board was only available on the IV.

    CS Prototype of the upcoming RBV model. Deeper cutaway supposedly, available with maple fretboard. Also notice the acryllic ramp.

    I guess putting out the RBIV made him rethink a few things.

    A great album, I pre-ordered it when I heard it was out.. Great Blues/Rock recording. He's also touring with Eric Johnson now, if you get the chance to catch him.

    Yup I got it a few months ago off of the website. Well worth listening to...if you like that kind of thing.

    :D
