chris robinson brotherhood
features the band's 'Older Guys' on the A-side & 'That's How Strong My Love Was' on the B-side & it includes a colouring book, obviously! In June 2012, following a 118-show journey, THE CHRIS ROBINSON BROTHERHOOD released their debut album 'BIG MOON RITUAL'.
It is a “roots-o-licious collection of tunes with beautiful guitar tones, inventive parts, gorgeous solos & killer vocals all around,” praised Guitar Player, while Relix similarly raved by describing the album as “a full immersion into Southern psychedelics, 9-minute song swoops, extended grooves & wailing vocals”. The fruits of the band’s hard-charging 2012 recording sessions with producer Thom Monahan are heard not only on 'Big Moon Ritual' but in its companion album 'The Magic Door', released later in 2012. Chris Robinson (lead vocals, guitar), Neal Casal (guitar, vocals), Adam MacDougall (keys, vocals), George Sluppick (drums) & Mark Dutton (bass, vocals) create exciting musical sparks throughout 'The Magic Door'. “We really feel these records set the stage for another full year, where we’ll see how far we can go with it,” says Robinson. “We already feel successful because we have the freedom to do what we want. And it’s always cosmic. The times demand it.”
