Rob Grill - Uprooted


Rob Grill, former lead singer of The Grass Roots, with his only solo offering. I bought this LP blindly when it came out almost thirty years ago, not knowing what to expect, and I was instantly fascinated with its raw sound. Grill croaks and sighs, the backing band adds a good shot of rhythm'n blues. On "Rock Sugar" Fleetwood Mac members John McVie, Mick Fleetwood and Lindsey Buckingham were the accompanying band. Truly Great! Other stand out cuts are "God Help the Man", a true walking rock'n roller, and the up-tempo "Open Up Your Heart". "Stranger" is a song penned by the successful composer team Mike Chapman and Nicky Chinn, and was already known from the Smokie album Midnight Café. At last we hear a re-recording of the Grass Roots success "Where Were You When I Needed You".
