Notes: Roy Roberts is the bridge between Memphis Soul and Contemporary Blues; an amalgam of Memphis Soul and Modern Electric Blues backed by Staxy-rhythm, timeless melodies, a horn section and spankin' guitar licks.
"Roy Roberts' Rock House Records was once named "2001 Blues Label Of The Year" by a Blues Publication. Unfortunately that seems to be the only time Soul/Blues master Roberts got his due. Some of the best Soul/Blues played by actual humans has been coming from Rock House Records for almost two decades now. The label has released acclaimed discs by Roberts, Chick Willis, Eddie Floyd, Floyd Miles, Tommy Thomas and more. This showcase, Blues & Soul Review Vol. 1, is a solid sampler of these works. Although I gotta warn you - check your check book balance - because after listening to this collection you'll be hunting down the original records." ~~ by Dylann DeAnna.
