Hobart Brothers featuring Lil' Sis Hobart
At Least We Have Each Other
Freedom Records

Holy cow! Does this one rock!!! I am blown away by the release! Please sign me up for the family reunion of the Hobart's! This album is filled with quality music to the 100th degree! Can you tell I love it! I don't think I've run into a better written album this year! Not one bad song on the album. If you like Rock Pop and Americana music, you will love this album.

Jon Dee Graham, Freddy Johnson, and Susan Cowsill are "The Hobarts featuring Lil Sis Hobart." Helping out the family on this CD is Andrew DuPlantis on Bass Guitar & Russ Broussard on drums. "At Least We Hve Each Other" features 10 songs, co-written by the three singer-songwriters in the studio. It was recorded in late 2010 by John and Mary Podio at Top Hat Recording in Austin, Texas.

I don't even know where to start naming my favorite tracks here. They are all my favorites! First Susan Cowsill is one of my favorite writers today. I loved her when she recorded with the Continental Drifters and her solo work is out of this world! She writes a mean song and her voice is true to evry note she sings. Freddy Johnson is another fantastic songwriter that blows me away. Jon Dee Graham is new to me, but if all his work is like this I'm a fan! Anyway back to the songs. I can't pick a favorate here. They are all good! The ones that really caught my ear and had me by the collar are: Ballad of the Lil Sis (Didn't I Love Her) a toe tapping smile grooving song from the first bar. Why don't I hunt a bluesy rock tune that gets you grooving from the first guitar chord. I never knew there would be you a very classy 60's Pop style song. All things being equal is an American Style song done to perfection, and I am sorry, a sad tale that really gets you in the heart.

As you can tell I love this CD! I hope that the Hobart Brothers & Lis Sis hit the road and come to Wisconsin and rock us all night long with their fantastic music. This CD is a MUST for your collection! Go buy it!
