Bill’s CD Raw Material is a collection of Blues covers . Raw Material is available at Cat Daddy, Bill Roberts solo gigs and on-line at iTunes and Amazon.com
Excellent Guitar Work on a Classic Blues-Rock Retrospective.
Who is this guy? Bill Roberts is an amazing undiscovered talent with fine taste in classic blues-rock. Speaking of Taste, he delivers a cover of Rory Gallagher’s Railway and Gun that is true to the original. Johnny Winter , Stevie Ray Vaughan and the Yardbirds’ Clapton, Beck, and Page are all respectfully covered. Liner notes say Roberts plays and sings everything on the CD. How can I find out more about this guy? When does he tour? A great collection from beginning to end.
