Manzarek-Rogers CD Tops Roots Rock Chart!
August 3, 2011
Translucent Blues, the new release from Ray Manzarek and Roy Rogers, is #1 on the current Roots Rock chart compiled by the Roots Music Report. Chart positions are determined by radio airplay around the country.
The brilliant collaboration between the co-founder/keyboardist of The Doors and member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the world renowned slide guitar master and Grammy winning producer debuted at #6 on the Billboard Blues Chart, as determined by sales.
Translucent Blues, which skillfully weaves rock, blues and a tinge of jazz together with poetry from the likes of Jim Carroll, Warren Zevon and beat Michael McClure into an innovative tapestry, has been well received by critics and fans alike.
Typifying critical reaction, the Minneapolis City Pages recently wrote, "Translucent Blues is very nearly a masterpiece that emphasizes Doors-like driving roadhouse blues-rock tinged with noirish overtones," while No Depression said, "The two artists are true masters of their craft and they are at their absolute best here."
