Pointe-Claire, Québec, Canada — Heads Up to collectors of legendary rock recordings and heads up to the relentless rock-prospectors inhabiting our planet (and of course those far beyond our present reach).
The word is out about Canada’s Ajo and The Hunger Boys.
“Ride An Elephant”, the must own, 10 tune LP, produced, engineered and mixed by Bill Hill (JB And The Playboys) featuring Montreal phenom, Ajo Tomasso, is now available everywhere excellent music can be found.
Critics say that each and every one of the ten “platinum” nuggets from the album “Ride An Elephant” by AJO AND THE HUNGRY BOYS is a masterpiece in and of itself.
The band is based in Canada’s musical mecca, Montreal, a city known for it’s amazing talent. While some names do come to mind, Frank Marino and “Mahogany Rush”, “April Wine”, “Offenbach”, Nanette Workman, Leonard Cohen, Luba and so on, this band is certainly no exception and their album solidly upholds the city’s pinnacle reputation.
Here’s what the people say:
hi I am here almost every day in hopes of some new music from you. You‘re awesome. Love the recordings!
Wowsa, very nice. Some very good tunes here. Will try and get a track called ‘Things Are Gettin Better’ on my friend’s radio show this Saturday.
Hi! I’ve been listening to ‘Things are getting better’ on repeat since this morning.
“Things are getting better” I just love this song
So glad I found your music. It’s my pleasure to listen and share
Andre Avanessian – Critic for “Radio Airplay” and “Jango”:
“… Superb performances, a solid arrangement, and an abundance of style make “Things Are Getting Better” a highly enjoyable listening experience.
From the brilliant blues-infused harmonica flourishes to the bright and grandiose nature of the brass and the killer guitar work to the epic-sounding synth, this is a very well-balanced track that both engages and enthralls. …”
