    The Rides

     No stranger to top flight musical partnerships, legendary singer-songwriter and Buffalo Springfield/CSN/CSN&Y principal Stephen Stills unites with fellow guitar slinger Kenny Wayne Shepherd and venerable Electric Flag keyboardist Barry Goldberg to form the new all-star blues-rock group The Rides. As The Rides bring a historic and distinctively American musical form into the 21st century, Stills calls them "the blues band of my dreams." The Rides will embark on a world tour beginning in September.

    The in-the-moment energy and unscripted emotion of Can't Get Enough, however, are among the album's greatest strengths, as is the powerhouse guitar interplay between Stills and Shepherd, and the stellar accompaniment from Goldberg—who, as a teenager in his native Chicago, sat in with Muddy Waters, Otis Rush and Howlin' Wolf, and went on to play keyboards for Bob Dylan at the Newport Folk Festival, formed The Electric Flag, and composed with Gerry Goffin. The album was recorded live in the studio over the course of about a week at EastWest in Los Angeles, helmed by longtime Shepherd producer Jerry Harrison, a renowned musician in his own right (Talking Heads, Modern Lovers, Casual Gods). Mostly first or second takes made the album's final cut. In addition to Layton—Shepherd's drummer, and also a veteran of Stevie Ray Vaughn's Double Trouble—the players include bassist Kevin McCormick (CSN, Jackson Browne).
