Album Notes
Produced (mostly) by Don Dixon; with guest appearances by NRBQ co-founder/guitarist Steve Ferguson and keyboardist Jon Carroll (Mary Chapin-Carpenter).

As we found ourselves waiting ever so patiently for the release of "Ants In Your Pants," we decided that in the interim, we'd release some songs that, hopefully, will interest some folks. In addition to "Rabbit," "Meat on the Bone" and "Rise Up, Little People" (our emancipation song for little people) - none of which made the final cut for record - there's a couple of live tracks recorded at the Double Door in Charlotte (including a new original "Talk Too Much") and a dance-crazy remix of "Rise Up" by our good friend Dan LeRoy. - Michael Lipton. Oct., 2004.

Caused me to remember I really like jazz!
Kinda reminds me of David Sanborne. I like the music.

Catchy lyrics and beat
Have seen them live so familiar with their music. This CD brings back memories of those times with a gospel blues and soul that keeps you repeating the lyrics and feeling the beat long after the CD is finished.
