Don't Want Lies - The Rides

from the album Can't Get Enough (2013)

The Rides are a blues-rock super trio consisting of Stephen Stills (Buffalo Springfield, CSNY), Barry Goldberg (Electric Flag), and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.  This group is something of a resurrection of a classic 1968 Super Session that featured Stills, Goldberg, Mike Bloomfield (Electric Flag), and Al Kooper (Blood, Sweat, & Tears).  The band also includes drummer Chris Layton (who plays with Kenny Wayne Shepherd and formerly Stevie Ray Vaughan) and bassist Kevin McCormick (CSN, Jackson Browne).

I've been digging their song Don't Want Lies, which features Stephen Stills at his finest.  The song sounds like it could have been recorded by Crosby, Stills, & Nash.  It is cool how good Stephen Still's vocals sound after a 40+ year career.  Also of note is his guitar playing, as well as the lead by Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

If you are looking for a new classic rock tune, check this one out.

  1. CSNY, laid back, and nearly one toke over some line I'm sure of it. This was an awesome close your eyes and time travel to that pre-destortion just good music time.
