Release date is April 15,2014!! And rest assured, it’s long awaited re~release is gonna start some fires..burn some speakers..and blow your minds!!
This was my first solo C.D. (1995) and I’ve always wanted to bring it back to life. I think it’s a good representation of where I was at in my life at that time..And I think with the musicans on this album, and the tunes themselves, it stands the test of time. I got to make it with some of the most talented musicians around. And great music is always worth another go round.” ~Kid Ramos~
100% of all proceeds from this album are going directly to Kid Ramos and his Family, to help with his recent battle with cancer.
“It has been a great pleasure for me to work with one of my heroes, and have the oportunity for Rip Cat Records to help out his family in their time of need with this project” ~Scott Abeyta~Rip Cat Records
“David “Kid” Ramos is a wonderful person; a great musician and blessed with an amazing family. He’s as good a guitar player as could ever be needed, in any situation. If he can think of it..he can play it..with huge tone, ridiculous phrasing and extreme courage. He joined my band in 1980 when he had just turned 21 and stayed with me until he got married in 1988. He has never let me down. We’ve logged millions of miles around the world playing the blues together. I love Kid Ramos..he probably plays on 15 out of my 31 releases because I can always count on him to get what I’m after and be able to figure out how to give it to me. He’s that real deal you always hear about, but rarely see or hear. God bless Kid Ramos and his family!!!!~James Harman~
“I first seen Kid in 1979, at the Golden Bear. He had the highest hair I’d ever seen back then..Haha..but more importantly..he had talent!! A few months later, I had the honor of being present when he auditioned for James Harman, and he had my vote 100%. He deserves all the successes he’s had, and more to come. Kid is not only a world class guitar player, but a world class nice guy. From day one, he’s been one of the nicest men I’ve ever met.”~Junior Watson~
“Kid’s tone, touch and feel on the guitar is amazing. Not only is he a friend, he’s also a Hero to all of us. A true Icon of the Blues.” ~Johnny Main~The 44′s
“Kid Ramos is an Inspiration to every West Coast Blues guitarist out there! This CD show’s his pure genius, a true legend” ~John Clifton~The MoFo Party Band
