RMHQ Weekly Staff Pick

Our "Man on the Street", Lio, selects one of his favourite albums of the moment...this week it is:

THE LIL' BAND O' GOLD - The Promised Land

"Some good friends of mine gave me the heads up on this 9-piece Cajun Swamp pop group before we released this album and I'm mighty glad they did!  The Promised Land is the soundtrack to the documentary (that hopefully gets a DVD release here) The Promised Land:  A Swamp Pop Journey.  It's heartfelt music from down Louisiana way, and is best enjoyed with some cold beers and good company.  A quote from the doco sums the sound up for me nicely - "White guys, playing Black music, damn good"."
