Whiskey Bayou Records artist: Anthony Rosano and the Conqueroos - Cheat The Devil - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Cheat The Devil, from Anthony Rosano and the Conqueroos and it's a strong blues rocker. Opening with Sweet Little Devil, a funky rocker with biting lead/slide guitar work by Anthony Rosano and cowbell laden drum work by Kyle McCormick, how could you go wrong. Jake Fultz on bass really does a solid job of driving this train and I gotta say, Rosano's lead vocals sound quite a bit like one of my favorite lead voices in rock, James Dewar of Robin Trower fame and together this is a great sound. Fat, distorted guitar tone permeates the opening of slow blues, What Kind of Fool, and with deep bass and tight drum work, Rosano really works the lead vocal on this track. Dropping out all of the overdriven guitar saturation, Rosano develops a beautiful melodic guitar line. Very nice. Funky blues rocker, Jonesboro Road, really is a cool track with McCormick and Fultz laying down a great groove and Rosano singing and playing lead in call and response in a style used quite often by Warren Haynes. Great track. On Rosalita, Rosano again shows how great a lead vocalist he really is, with rich lead vocals and playing Spanish flavored, melodic lead guitar giving the track just the slightest taste without changing the overall flavor of the set. Very nice. Wrapping the set is a cool rocking interpretation of Slim Harpo's King Bee. With an aggressive bass/drum line and a rock funky feel,  Rosano works the lead vocal/lead guitar leaving a wanting for more. Very solid closer.
