This is some easy listening music something done very well by this group another enjoyable sounding album , have enjoyed all that has been sent my way.
Here is the band playing "My Love"

This is not on the album but is a recent video of them playing.



The great melodies and vocal harmonies are nothing new for this band but is the main element of what makes them so good as well as their musicianship.


"Make My Heart Move" has the start and sound of a Travelling Willbury's song , some feel good stuff. 


The title song has a nice bluesy feel and vocals , these guys just grow in their songwriting skills and performance as well , another good one for this band.

Below they are backing up Mike Schiavo on "Budapest"
