The Rae Gordon Band will be debuting the release of the new CD, Wrong Kind of Love, at the Vinyl Tap on Saturday, November 16. The album contains ten original blues-soul numbers, seven written by Pat McDougall, three by Rae and Pat, and one by Rod Furlott. It was produced by the band’s guitarist Kivett Bednar, and engineered and mixed by Jimi Bott at his Roseleaf Recording studios. The CD covers a wide gamut of styles, from lowdown barroom blues to dance-worthy funk, from heart-tugging soul ballad to slide-drenched rage rocker, from minor-key blues angst to uplifting soul anthem. The recording features the regular members of the 7-piece Rae Gordon Band: Rae on lead vocals, Kivett Bednar on guitar & vocals, Pat McDougall on keyboards & vocals, Ed Pierce on drums, Joseph Conrad on bass, Allan Kalik on trumpet & horn arrangements, and Scott Franklin on saxophone. The new disc will be available at the venue, as well as the band’s two previous releases, T-shirts and more.
