“It’s always a pleasure for a jaded old curmudgeon like me to see a dude like R.J. Ronquillo come out of nowhere, playing the living hell out of his guitar and singing great. A record like this will restore your faith in music! I was introduced to R.J. a few years ago, and I mainly knew him as a guitarist who played with other people, and I thought to myself, this guy is really, really good. Then he put this group together and recorded the record you are now holding, with fantastic results! Rock and Roll, rockin’ blues, a touch of rockabilly and soul, played with taste and conviction, with a great supporting cast in the form of Ron Dziubla on saxophone, Pete Curry on drums, and Rob Douglas on bass. How can you go wrong? I’ll tell you, you can’t go wrong buying this record. Just put it on and let R.J. Ronquillo impress the hell out of you the way he did me."
