Roy Rogers - - Split Decision

Split Decision is Roy Rogers's first studio recording in seven years with his band, The Delta Rhythm Kings, features an edgy, cross-genre style. The release marks a reunion of sorts with Blind Pig, as the label put out some of Roger's first albums in the late 1980s. Since then he's gone on to worldwide acclaim as one of the best slide guitar players around, garnered multiple Grammy nominations as producer for his one-time boss John Lee Hooker and for Ramblin' Jack Elliott, and received numerous accolades for his work as a song composer and on movie soundtracks and television. Roy's exquisite guitar work and sterling songwriting skill shine brightly on this latest offering.

Split Decision is eclectic Americana and contemporary blues recordings at it's finest. Edgy guitar tracks, deep grooves, tense rockin' blues and ballads. Surprises include jazz instrumentals with saxophone by George Brooks (Zakir Hussain and Etta James) and a rare duet with multi platinum flamenco recording artist Ottmar Liebert. Also, special guests include Phil Aaberg on keyboards (Elvin Bishop, Peter Gabriel) and son Sam Rogers on vocal percussion and some other surprises!
