First You Liveby Dusty Rhodes and the River Band
Coming from a place (and a label) not exactly known for its grinding Southern rock-influenced alt-country, Dusty Rhodes and the River Band play music that sounds a lot closer to something that might exist in Nashville rather than Orange County. Not that this is authentic country, but the band clearly doesn't mean it to be, either -- there are strong jam band leanings

If members of classic rock icons The Band and progressive rock’s Yes had decided to fuse their distinct styles, it might sound a bit like Dusty Rhodes and the River Band. From the country-western shout along “Keys to the Truck” and the 1970s-styled prog rocker “Street Fighter” to the shimmering alt country gem “Goodnight, Moonshine” and fiddle-anchored alt rocking title track, the forthcoming “First You Live” is clearly one of the most exciting debuts of 2007.
