Product Notes

Recorded a la 'The Band' style (in a small house on a mobile unit) on Coronado Island, CA, Crown City Sessions finds the Riders drawing from a variety of influences ranging from classical, jazz, blues, rock, R&B, country, and bluegrass. Simply stated the songs found on CCS can be called Rock'n'Roll (or at least that is what we think Levon Helm would say) often compared to Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Dave Matthews Band, The Band, Bob Dylan, and Dire Straits. It is in this versatility that the band finds it's niche, allowing for multiple interpretations of their own music as well as influential music. Crown City Sessions which was co-produced with Guy Fletcher (Dire Straits, Mark Knopfler & Emmylou Harris) shows the Riders dynamic range of influences and arrangements starting from the album opener 'Katie May I'. This song kicks off the album and exemplifies the implicit swagger of the band with it's influence and vibe obviously taken from The Band's iconic tune "The Weight". "Katie May I" right away showcases the soloing abilities with a ragtime style piano, bluesy violin, and soulful guitar solo all making their introductions on the album. Following that is a more ethereal tune entitled "Storylines". This song shows the influence of Dire Straits style guitar and Dave Matthews style violin work combined with a thundering but ethereal bridge Peter Gabriel would be proud of. The Riders are used to performing covers from their years performing in bars and clubs and Crown City Sessions also features their first venture into recording a few; Bob Dylan's "Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You" and The Faces "Ooh La La" (written by Ronnie Lane & Ron Wood). On these two songs you hear the Riders ability to rearrange instrumentation and add intensity while at the same time staying true to the song itself and not sacrificing it's overall story and theme. After the finger-style acoustic guitar number entitled "Summer Rain" the Riders turn up the volume a bit with the riff based jam inspired rockers "From Far Behind" and "The Minute". "From Far Behind" showcases the Riders with one of their more funk inspired grooves. This song surprises you, as you would expect it from a veteran jazz-fusion combo. With it's extended Wurlitzer solo and bouncing bass line tying the whole song together this song really drives the album into the next few tracks. "The Minute" follows with a Rolling Stones inspired guitar riff that would make Keith Richards proud - the whole song is clearly influenced by late 60's early 70's Stones with it rocking guitar solo to it's falsetto harmonies on the chorus reminiscent of the Stones "Miss You". The album finishes out with a Springsteen inspired number entitled "No Easy Way" featuring George Thorogood & the Destroyers saxophonist Buddy Leach. This is a great driving song that sounds like a lost track from somewhere between "Born To Run" and "Darkness on the Edge of Town" sessions. In total Crown City Sessions is 12 tracks of Rock'n'Roll exploration while staying true to their roots and influences. The Riders sophomore album shows them taking huge strides and exploring new territory from their independent debut "200 Miles From Everywhere..." which was produced by Richie Podolor (Three Dog Night, Steppenwolf, New Radicals)
