ALBUM REVIEW: "Ricky Richards and the Sound Organization" 

Ricky Richards and the Sound Organization

Self-titled

Self-released

facebook.com/rickyrichardsandthesoundorganization

Ricky Richards and the Sound Organization have gone about this self-released, stompin' R&B platter the right way instrumentally. There's bright 'n' ballsy brass, a tight rhythm section, backing gal vocals, and Richards parked up front behind his keyboard and his shades as he runs the whole wild affair. The Sound Organization is a good band full of good musicians ... and that's the problem. It's a tad vanilla. The slop and sleaze, the bop and grease just ain't there. And frankly that's more important than getting the notes right. The band is still a lot of fun and packs a solid groove and I dare anyone to sit still at one of their shows. They just need to put a little more stank on it.
