RICKY C QUARTET, THE: Recent Affairs: LP

This LP contains rock-inspired punk. At times, punk-inspired rock. The singer sounds a bit like the singer from The Saints. The guitars are low distortion and feature lots of Chuck Berry riffs in the vein of ‘77 New York bands. “Rock the Boat” utilizes a saxophone nicely. The saxophone occasionally pushes the sound to the Jersey shore. I think this album is more for the older crowd, but that’s me and I like it.
