Rarely do you hear a sound that blends as many diverse influences. There are strains of progressive rock, blues rock and pop/rock from the era of the Hit Parade but the full sound of Sweet James is so crisp it simply rocks your lights out. Check out the chorus of Better For The Crime to catch these players on all cylinders.

He took the song from here (me with my hand at my chest) to here (me with my hand above my head). This song - from beginning to end - grabs you and doesn't let you go. Get on your best walkin' shoes my friend!
