Vito blues...
Review written by Deanna (deanna@fleetwoodmac.net), September 8th, 2004

this is an awesome album he keeps you begging for more of his awesome guitaring!

Vibrant Vito does it again
Review written by John Fitzgerald, September 8th, 2004

Rick grabs us right as the outset with an ultra tasty lick that sends us on our way in "Let's get it" and this does seem to set the tone for the record as the instrumentals on the record are stronger this time while the vocal numbers are not as strong this time out, there is still some interesting moments such as the chain gang blues of Rick's friend, the late Ronnie Barron from the John Mayall days in "Carry it on home to Rosie" which certainly makes an impact. "Rhumba diablo" & "Exotica by night" are exquisitely cool instrumentals while the closer "Bayou goodbye" is a fun rave up to party on into the evening with. Despite having less highlights, I'd probably say this album flows easier than "Pink and black" so on the overall will gather more listens in full.
