Just for a Thrill [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
Ever since leaving the Rolling Stones, Bill Wyman has been keeping a low profile -- which isn't quite the same thing as keeping quiet.

In contrast, the Rhythm Kings dug out some great blues and R&B chestnuts and added a few new originals in the same style, for a series of mellow and enjoyable LPs, of which 2005's Just for a Thrill is the fourth. If you've heard any of the previous three, you know what to expect -- slick, professional, friendly grooves, impeccably played and delivered with a smile. There may not be any grit and the surfaces may be too smooth, but there's a warm vibe to the proceedings. Clearly, the Rhythm Kings -- who include Albert Lee, Georgie Fame, Andy Fairweather-Low, and Mark Knopfler on occasion this time around -- are having a good time, and even if that good time isn't quite contagious, it's still palpable.
