Must-Have Music
Strong "Buy" recommendation. Bob Seger calls the Motor City Horns his "Turbochargers." They're that and more. Local Boys has uptempo numbers, world-beat, blues, even an old Duke Ellington number. A musical feast.

Plus, if you buy the physical CD, you get "Lucifer," an amazing track. It's been scorching my speakers for months.
