PLAYLIST: #190 The Robert Cray Band's new album 'This Time'

Episode 190 - The Robert Cray Band - 02 September 2009

Robert Cray started playing guitar in his early teens. At Denbigh High School in Newport News, Virginia, his love of blues and soul music flourished as he started collecting records. By the age of twenty, Cray had seen his heroes Albert Collins, Freddie King and Muddy Waters in concert and decided to form his own band called Steakface; they began playing college towns on the West Coast. On his newest album 'This Time' he is joined by long time bassist and friend Richard Cousins as well as Jim Pugh (keyboard), and Tony Braunagel (drums) for some rock-blues-soul music thats bound to soothe and please.
