There were some bands from the 80's that held a reputation for being tough. Little Caesar were one of those, and though their music was a battleground of hard rock mixed with whiskey soaked blues, they weren't too far adrift from 70's era Aerosmith and The Boyzz, or perhaps a more rockin' Credence Clearwater Revival. I never owned any of Caesar's two albums prior to this one, nor the Manic Eden album which singer Ron Young sang on a few years after this. I can see why the band kept a tight fanbase with their brand of bluesy rock quite appealing in places.

The Songs
Little Caesar have been out of the public limelight for many years, though haven't truly disappeared off the map. 'Redemption' was released independently in 2009, but now sees a wider distribution through UK reissue label Grind That Axe. Their trademark sound/style is retained, and is even more retro than before. The band run the gauntlet of what made the late 60's and early 70's music scene so interesting. Examples include the fun time romp of 'Same Old Story', or the Rolling Stones riffola of 'Witness Stand', the fiery catch-cry of 'Sick And Tired', the 70's classic rock of 'Real Rock Drive' which will please fans of the older brigade of bands such as Humble Pie, Savoy Brown etc. 'Woodstock' has a southern rock tremble to it, Rick Medlocke and Blackfoot are good examples in this case. Little Caesar opt for a couple of quieter moments too. The title track, 'That Was Yesterday' and 'Just A Like A Woman' are three examples, but I think the band really shine when the pedal is put to the metal!

In Summary
The band are heading over to Europe later in the year for a few dates, hopefully places like Belgium, Netherlands and Germany (that are very supportive of the blues rock scene) will pack them in and give Ron, Loren and the boys a big welcome!
