Ricky Byrd Sobering Times CD Preview

  


 

Three minutes and fifty-six seconds of tender guitar playing on "Just Like You," not a sequel to Paul Revere and the Raiders "Just Like Me," it's a tune about damage transformation. Byrd's vocal is strong and effective. Great production on the final track of the Sobering Times CD https://youtu.be/S8soJa7r5c4 

 



The first track, on the other hand, does have a driving "Just Like Me" Rolling Stones punching opening track, "Quittin' Time Again." It is one of my favorite tracks I've ever heard from Ricky, like those nuggets that Ian Hunter always puts on a CD, instantly memorable, danceable, in the pocket. - from forthcoming review of Sobering Times CD for Somerville News Weekly, TMRZoo, Medford News Weekly and ClubBohemia.club   https://youtu.be/0hDBp-mSXzs
