his album captures the best of those early LeRoi Brothers days, the times that devout fans still get in a lather over. To save money the album was recorded between 11 PM and 5AM when the studio offered cheap rates. Perhaps the lateness of the hour contributed to those wonderful rough edges that still jump out of the tracks today. No gimmicks, just real rock’n’roll. Producer Vince McGarry just let the boys play. The original LeRois – Mike Buck, Steve Doerr and Don Leady—were backed by guest bass player Keith Ferguson except on the cut “Are You With Me Baby” which was done sans bass. This record made many people’s Top Ten List after it came out in 1983. Turn up the volume, put the beer on ice and you’ll discover the reason why!

This 2017 Deluxe Reissue adds to the mania by including Six Bonus Tracks! Four are from the legendary Moon Twist EP originally released on Amazing Records in 1981 and features Alex Napier on bass. Two additional tracks are outtakes from the 1983 Check This Action sessions.
