When Rob writes songs they have a lot of social commentary and that is true of this CD as well as others he creates. Songs like "Speeches to The Streets'' and "Blue State Blues" should be listened to for the lyrics as well as the music. This guy is a treasure to have in this region. Get the CD, but also go catch him live. When Rob came to the Pacific Northwest he quickly realized that there were already some good harmonica players here, so he dropped the harmonica and picked up his bass. On this CD he picked the harmonica back up, and I encourage everyone to listen for some great sounding harmonica on Blues State.
