ROOT DOCTOR

- Live at the Cadillac Club

2008-10-20

Driving it home at the Cadillac Club, Root Doctor puts the pedel down and hits cruise control. One of Michigan’s longest running touring bands the fellas decide to crank out a recording for the reverence of their home town crowd and make a well executed piece of sound. Greg Nagy guitar is in good form breaking in and out of Jim Alfredsons organ soulful work. Meanwhile Williams and Bole hold down the bottom for all the feet moving natives with Motor City Horns let nothing go missing. The night wakes up with Booker T & the M.G.’s “Hip Hug Her” and keeps the JuJu flowing from there. Track three “Keep Our Business of the Streets” brings Root Doctors authenticity out in the open while warning us to keep it under wraps. These guys really sweat it out for the likes of us on this super fine release. Give it up for them one more time. – While Lee Notable Tracks: 1. Hip Hug Her, 3. Keep our Business of the Streets 6. It’s Too Late To Try To Do Right
