WHAT RYAN`S GIG GUIDE SAID ABOUT THEIR LAST ALBUM `SCRATCHIN AROUND`............. `The album kicks off with a Bob Dylan cover `Dirt Road Blues` from Bob`s `Time Out of Mind` album, and what agreat version! Much more upbeat than Bob`s version yet still with that superb groove. Followed by a great version of America`s `Sandman` and also Woody Guthrie`s `Dusty Road` all done folk/rock style, sort of reminding me of a Black Country version of The Saw Doctors! This band I think would go down really well playing live at some of the folk rock type venues out there, so someone book em soon!. As I wouldn`t mind seeing this lot. Excellent stuff.` (Ryan`s Gig Guide) The Rollin` River Band is unstoppable. It is one of the most exciting live bands ever to grace the Stage

Style: Rock / Country Rock / Roots
