BROTHERHOOD, their fifth release for Alligator, is also their most bluesy album to date, filled with roadhouse wisdom, late-night doo wop, soulful R&B and closing with an amazing dose of Sunday morning spirit.
On BROTHERHOOD, The Holmes Brothers dig deep to deliver a wealth material. The new release features fourteen songs—including eight new Holmes Brothers originals. And, to complement the original material, there are six carefully-chosen covers including dazzling versions of songs by Ike Turner (“You’ve Got To Lose”), William Bell & Booker T. Jones (“My Kind of Girl”), Ted Hawkins (“I Gave Up All That I Had”) and more. The band’s unparalleled version of “Amazing Grace,” which opens every Holmes Brothers live performance, is a soul-stirring highlight of the album.
