Pawnshop Roses head south

The Pawnshop Roses are heading into Memphis on Halloween night for a recording session at the legendary Sun Studios in Memphis next week as part of a southern swing includes stops in North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and West Virginia. But, before hitting the road to what is quickly becoming their new second home (the south) the Roses were graced with some special studio guests in Philadelphia.
Lenesha Randolph and Jason Crosby from Robert Randolph's Family Band stopped into town to help out on some new tracks under the direction of producer extraordinaire Pete Donnelly that will be unveiled late January at a special show at Philadelphia's World Cafe Live. See some photos from the sessions here and here.

Meanwhile people are talking about the current record, Let it Roll:
Pop Matters : "on other standouts like opening track "Here We Go", the band proves it can keep time with contemporaries like Ryan Adams and Jesse Malin."

Americana UK: "the rock n roll of the enthusiastic and non-cynical...Let It Roll may be the record that that brings the biggest smile to your face this year.

The Pawnshop Roses return from their trip south to play a hometown show at the Grape Street Pub in Philadelphia on November 9th.
