CD Review: Mitch Ryder Makes "The Promise" For His Fans
Right from the opening track, “Thank You Mama” there is not doubts that Ryder knows how to turn up the funk. The new album contains 11 original songs that capture Ryder’s unique combination of funk, blues and rock. Ryder gets his bass groove going with the title track before heading down south with the Latin sounds of “Let’s Keep Dancing.” Ryder pours his heart and soul in to the ballad “Crazy Beautiful,” then rocks on the guitar driven “Get Real.” The album contains one cover song, a live version of the Jimmy Ruffin classic “What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted,” before the album finishes with the politically charged “The Way We Were.”
Mitch Ryder’s new album, “The Promise” was produced by Don Was and be released in February. Mitch Ryder will be performing in Germany thru mid-March, but look for him to hit U.S. shores soon. For more information, please visit mitchryder.net.
