Stills describes The Rides as “the blues band of my dreams”. Goldberg was the keyboard player and founding member of Electric Flag and played on the original Super Session in 1968 that included Stills but their pieces were laid down on different days.

The Rides came about at the suggestion of Stills and Goldberg’s manager Elliot Roberts (who also manages Neil Young). Despite them both working on a common record in 1968 and having the same manager the two had never met before this project. “It was like finding a long lost soul brother” says Goldberg in a statement. “We connected on so many things, started jamming, and soon had begun writing our first song.”

Stills recruited Kenny Wayne Shepherd. “The Rides are a perfect mix of generations, where three musicians who love and play the blues collide and create music that goes beyond all our other individual life experiences and career achievement,” says Shepherd. “Stephen and I have rock backgrounds as well, but the blues is the fabric that holds this all together.

The Rides album will feature some originals and covers of songs by Muddy Waters, Elmore James, Neil Young and Iggy & The Stooges.

The album was produced by Jerry Harrison of the Talking Heads.

Album tracklisting is:

Mississippi Road House
That’s A Pretty Good Love
Don’t Want Lies
Search and Destroy
Can’t Get Enough Of Loving You
Honey Bee
Rockin’ In The Free World
Talk To Me Baby
Only Teardrops Fall
Word Game
