“SHAKEN BEYOND BELIEF”

AS I HAVE WRITTEN SEVERAL HUNDRED MUSIC REVIEWS, I AM TOTALLY CONVINCED THERE IS AMAZING AMOUNTS OF TALENT OUT THERE. WITH THIS BEING SAID, I’VE HAD THE REAL AND TRUE PLEASURE OF LISTENING TO AN GROUP NAMED EARL & THE AGITATORS FEATURING SCOTT HOLT AND AN EP CALLED EARL & THE AGITATORS. IF YOU DON’T KNOW THE NAME SCOTT HOLT HE MADE HIS DEBUT AS A GUITARIST FOR THE BUDDY GUY BAND AND ROGER EARL IS ONE TO BE RECOGNIZED AS THE ‘BRAINCHILD” OF THIS AMAZING AND WONDERFUL BAND, CALLED EARL AND THE AGITATORS,  ROGER IS THE DRUMMER FOR THE CLASSIC ROCK BAND FOGHAT AND WITH THIS A TRUE LEGENDARY SOUND EVOLVES. THE START OF THIS EP A SONG WRITTEN BY KRIS KRISTOFFERSON THE FAMED WRITER OF THE TOTALLY REMEMBERED SONG  “ME & BOBBY McGee THE SONG CALLED “SUNDAY MORNING COMING DOWN” AS THE LATE JOHNNY CASH COVERED IN HIS ILLUSTRIOUS CAREER. EARL & THE AGITATORS REALLY MAKE THE SONG COME ALIVE AND ALLOW YOUR EARS TO SLANT IN THEIR DIRECTION. AS THEY START TO SLANT THE NEXT SONG IS ALREADY PLAYING “WHERE’S THE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL, AND EARL & AGITATORS MAKE UP & GET THE KICK STARTED AND GEARS FULL BLAST ARRIVING WITH A TRULY AMAZING AND ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO GET A TRUE FEELING OF THE TOTAL TALENT INVOLVED IN THE TREMENDOUS AND AWESOME MUSIC PROJECT. THE RIFFS ARE EVER PRESENT THROUGHOUT THIS EP AND EARL & AGITATORS RATHER THAN ASK, “WHERE’S ROCK ‘N’ ROLL,  THEY SHOW YOU WITHIN THE CONFINES OF ONE HELL OF A SONG AND I LOVE IT. THE NEXT SONG REALLY BITES INTO THE CAKE AND SHOWS THE AMAZING ABILITIES OF THE BAND & WHO COULD ASK FOR A BETTER SOUND THAT EVOLVED FROM MY SPEAKERS. THE BLUES RIFFS ARE EVIDENT IN THIS SONG, THE SLIDE GUITAR OF BRYAN BASSETT AND THE SMOOTHNESS OF VOCALS & GUITAR OF SCOTT HOLT ON THE SONG CALLED “LOVE ISN’T KIND” IS SHEER MUSIC ARTISTRY. THE SOUND OF THE MUSICALITY IS SIMPLY PUT FREAKIN’ AMAZING AND TRUE TALENTS ARE ALL EXPOSED WITH EVERY MEMBER OF THE AGITATORS WHERE THE AGITATION ISN’T PRESENT, THE ONLY AGITATION THAT OCCURED TO ME WAS HOW COME I HAVEN’T HEARD OF THESE GUYS BEFORE? THE SOUND IS UNBELIEVABLY GREAT, AND HAS ME ASKING FOR MORE. THIS WHOLE EP IS JUST SIMPLY PUT A TEASER FOR MY MUSICAL TASTEBUDS, AND PLEADING FOR MORE. “HIGH HEEL SNEAKERS’ CONTINUE THE BLUES AND LOUD AND PROUD, EARL & THE AGITATORS SLAM THE SONG FOR A FULL DUNK, THREE POINTER IF YOU WILL. AFTER LISTENING TO THIS EP I AM TOTALLY CONVINCED OF HOW MUSIC TALENT IS OUT THERE, AND EARL & THE AGITITORS ARE ONE OF THEM THAT WILL BE ON TOP. WITHIN THEIR IMMEDIATE SURROUNDINGS THEY ARE A SOUND AND ONE TO BE NOTICED IN A MAJOR WAY, WITH SO MUCH REAL TALENT ON BOARD THIS BAND ROGER EARL, SCOTT HOLT, BRYAN BASSETT, RODNEY O’QUINN, TONY BULLARD & MARK PETROCELLI, AN TRULY AMAZING LINEUP AND SOME OF WONDER WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO OUR FAVORITE BANDS? WELL I MUST SAY THEY’RE STILL WITH US JUST GOTTA LOOK A LITTLE FURTHER AND DIG, AND YOU’LL FIND EM’ OUT THERE. AN AMAZING EP THAT IS WELL WORTH IT’S WEIGHT IN GOLD AND TRULY MAGICAL & TRULY LEGENDARY TALENT WITHIN EARL & THE AGITATORS IS WHERE BY HEARING THIS AMAZING SOUNDING EP, THAT THIS IS WHERE LEGENDS CAN BE HEARD. I KNOW NOW NOT TO EVER DOUBT WHERE LEGENDS GO, THEY REBOUND & ASK THE QUESTION “WHERE’S THE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL, IN MY OPINION IT’S FOUND ON THIS AMAZING AND TRULY STUPENDOUS EP FROM EARL & THE AGITATORS. MY MANY THANKS TO ELLIOT LINDA McGOUGH FOR SHARING HIS  COMMON BELIEF IN WHAT I BELIEVE “HEARING IS BELIEVING’ AND HIS WONDERFUL FRIENDSHIP AND AMAZING BAND THAT MADE ME MORE OF A BELIEVER THAT THERE’S TRULY GREAT TALENT OUT THERE, ONE MUST LOOK AND YE SHALL FIND, AND I FOUND IT WITH EARL & THE AGITATORS.

I have a very extensive broadcasting & music back round. with over 30 years experience. I started a writing career, with the idea bringing notice to the industry, writing about individuals, from all around the globe, all genres and remaining consistent with my slogan of "Hearing is Believing", and bringing out the "positive" in all artists no matter how small, big or different. I feel all need to be given that chance to be noticed for their talents and allow others to hear, and be exposed to their craft. As of date I have written well over 180 music album reviews and continue to acquire more everyday. Some legends, some independent artists, but all in all my wish is they get the to share the stage lights within the industry and with my "Positive " music posts through my writing about them and reviewing their album always in a "Positive" forum.
