Ella and The Roosters come from Spain via Switzerland where they recorded this hot platter. I’m not sure if they are still active under this form as I believe Ella is now playing with the Blues Shouters. Anyway, we still have this platter to testify to their talent. Ella has a powerful voice, to say the least, and the Roosters are a solid three piece band. The production is perfect giving them the warm and raw sound needed for their brand of rockin’ blues/rhythm’n’blues. Guitar player Jorge Nunes wrote several originals that stand well near the covers (I especially like I Can’t Stand It No More with its Somestack Lightning type of riff). Brenda Lee was Miss Dynamite and now we have Miss A-Bomb, keep an eye on her future projects, I’d love to hear her backed by a horn section.
