Stephen Stills' Blues Supergroup The Rides Now Set to Release Album in August

429 RecordsSome revised details have been revealed about Stephen Stills' upcoming blues project The Rides.  The supergroup, which also features guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd and founding Electric Flag keyboardist Barry Goldberg, is now set to release its debut album, Can't Get Enough, on August 27, several weeks later than initially reported.

The 10-track collection includes four brand-new songs co-written by Stills, Goldberg and Shepherd.  Can't Get Enough also features covers of Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World," Iggy and the Stooges' "Search and Destroy," Muddy Waters' "Honey Bee" and Elmore James' "Talk to Me Baby."  The album concludes with "Word Game," a previously unrecorded song Stills wrote during the late 1960s when he still was a member of The Buffalo Springfield.

"It was an old acoustic song that I had fun adapting to an electric band," explains Stephen.

Speaking about the recording of the album, Stills notes, "In the spirit of that simple, raw authentic '40s and '50s blues music the three of us love, we got in there and boom! A few takes and we were done."

He adds, "The songs have muscle, they don't sound dated or contrived, they're very natural and organic.  I can't wait to tour with these guys and start recording again!"

The Rides do indeed have plans to hit the road together.  While no dates have been confirmed, the band's trek is expected to begin sometime in September.
