Album Review: Ronnie Earl & The Broadcasters - Good News (10/10)

Good News Hi-Res Cover

This album is, indeed, good news! From the uptempo rockabilly-like romp “I Met Her on That Train” to the jazzy samba-esque “Time to Remember,” Earl proves he is a master of the Stratocaster, able to assimilate many musical tones and  styles. The addition of guest vocalist Diane Blue is refreshing. Her take on Sam Cooke’s “Change is Gonna Come” is magical and deeply moving while her work on Buddy Guy’s “In the Wee Hours” is indelible and haunting. Earl and company tap into the healing power of music, with a comment on the Boston marathon bombing tragedy called “Runnin’ in Peace.” – Eric A. Harabadian
