A platter of 10 classic soul and R&B rave-ups is served up hot on the debut album from this well-oiled San Diego band fronted by Bob “Sully” Sullivan, a do-it-yourself entrepreneur, national radio and TV host who channels his powers of persuasion into the role of magnetic frontman. Recorded at the legendary Henson Recording Studio (formerly A&M Studios) in Hollywood with multiple Grammy Award-winning producer Chris Goldsmith (Blind Boys of Alabama, Charlie Musselwhite, Ben Harper) and Grammy-winning bassist James East as musical director, “Let’s Straighten It Out” captures the band’s show-stopping magic with versions of songs by Billy Preston, Jackie Wilson, Ray Charles, Shuggie Otis and Latimore.
The album was recorded in only five jam-packed days with mostly-live versions of carefully curated love-themed songs that made a mark when they were originally released and yet also feel relevant today. Sully’s soulful, heartfelt vocals cut across layers of horns and guitars that take the listener on an emotional arc of joy, disappointment, struggle, and redemption.
