“The party starts now!  Anyone within earshot of the eight-piece Blue Dice Band knows them to be the quintessential soul/blues revue in these parts, with an ass-kickin’ horn section burning of Tower of Power like funk that never gives up. While the opening volley of “Right Off My Face” and “Let it Shine” sounds like killer Paul Butterfield Blues Band era romps, the band coast along with some Boz Skaggs-influenced soul vamping, eventually settling into a few smooth, laidback yarns that are primo Tupelo Honey-styled Van Morrison.  ”
