    Oh cool! You have the album! I have it on order! I was a little slow on the take with these guys because I agree the single is by far not the best on the album. I have it ordered now because I listened to the album after hearing your profile song. :) That's cool we both like "You Ain't Alone" as it's definitely a standout. My fav is "Be Mine" but it's close. The tracks you posted are great as well. Really shows the soul side which is what I like about them! :)

    Yeah Sooty, they have done pretty well since its release. This stuff isn't usually my cup of tea but what instantly grabbed my attention was Brittany's vocals and now I love them. If you notice a lot of times the single seems a lot different from what the rest of the album has to offer.

    OHMAGOSH! I love her voice. I knew somebody in this forum would know them. I downloaded their album yesterday and I fell in love with tnhe way she sings ... all that power. And I agree that this is a similar situation to Big Brother & The Holding Company.

    Glad you like them Syd! One thing about her voice is it's hard to pinpoint at first! It's unique but it's the passionate delivery that gets her the Janis nod! :grinthumb

    Alabama Shakes

    I saw this band recently and thought they were excellent :cheers2 Went straight out and bought their album 'Boys & Girls'.

    Alabama Shakes is a band formed in Athens, Alabama in 2009. The band consists of lead singer Brittany Howard, guitarist Heath Fogg, bassist Zac Cockrell, and drummer Steve Johnson.
