“Going Down Slow” Gets Music Blogged

Rick Shaffer is an artist with a truly distinctive approach to his vision and sound. This talented musician cleverly combines alternative music and country rock in order to create songs that hit the spot emotionally and technically.

The songs on Rick’s recently released album “Outside Of Time“ demonstrate high quality musicianship and timeless song-writing wits, reminding me of the sound of seminal influencers including the likes of Neil Young, The Cramps or The Blasters, just to mention but a few.

The album’s lead single “Going Down Slow” does a great job of driving the album with a set of stunning rhythms and melodies. The song effortlessly goes between blues, rock and country. The aesthetics of the song have a truly 60s flavor, but the arrangement and the production value have a punch that is all modern and up-to-speed with the needs and want of today’s audience.

Rick is a charismatic performer whose style is refreshingly direct, iconic and versatile. Behind its thought-provoking enigmatic title, this album hides a refreshingly down-to-earth approach that goes back to the roots of Rick’s passion.

Rick Shaffer and Bruce Cohen, a/k/a The Reds®, composed and performed the score of "MANHUNTER." The soundtrack album was released in limited quantities in 1986 on MCA Records (#6182), but the film's failure at the box office prevented a release on the then new compact disc format. Soon afterwards, the 12" record and audio cassette were deleted making them highly sought after by fans of the film. Currently, the film is a cult classic and can be ...

""Blowing My Mind" ("I ain't changing, I ain't changing my mind now"), on which Shaffer laces his lyrics with dark flecks of guitar fills. Like I've said before, and feel obliged to say again — if the Rolling Stones are serious about reclaiming their mojo, here's where that mission should start" Chairman Ralph / Ministry Of Truth.► https://youtu.be/jkV3fiOYww8
