The “40 Year Brotherhood” CD is a collection of songs that reflect The Brymers’
roots in 1960’s southern rock music. The listener will hear new original songs
that were composed by various members over the last six months. The
listener will also hear some of The Brymers favorite songs from the 1960’s era.
These songs have been “Brymerized” and are high energy with that familiar fuzz guitar, harp, Hammond B3, and melodic harmonies. The title track is called, “40 Year Brotherhood” and is Kenny Sinner’s (keyboards) personal description of The Brymers saga on their transition from a 1963 California garage band to a top performing and recording act in 1968. Track two is an anthem dedicated to all the touring bands of the 1960’s who loved rock-n-roll. Bill Brumley and Kenny Sinners’ lyrics describe the day in a life of a rock-n-roll musician. The Brymers then take on Roy Head’s classic of “Treat Her Right” and Brymerize it with a high-energy fuzz guitar, harp, and Hammond. The CD also contains the group’s classic hit of “Sacrifice” (1966) and “I Want to Tell You” (1966, both composed by Kenny Sinner). Next, The Brymers delve deeply into New Orleans southern rock delta blues with original tunes such as “Bad Boy,” “The Dark Side,” and “Torture You.” Delphi recording artist Jeannie Sanders re-unites with The Brymers and sings her powerful arrangement of “Black Velvet.” Jeannie frequently travelled and toured with the group during the 1960’s. “Blue is the Color of My Heart” is a great original composition where The Brymers incorporate strings and horns in an arrangement that was recorded in Nashville. It is guaranteed to make your ears perk-up and take note. “Fit Me In” (written by Jim Mellick) is a hard driving rocker that shows off the guitar and keyboard skills of Jim Mellick and Kenny Sinner. The “40 Year Brotherhood” CD is rounded out with a fast & slow medley of the group’s favorite 1960’s rock-n-roll tunes that have been “Brymerized.” The “40 Year Brotherhood” is a great CD which contains a lot of music and will make you want to get up and dance. If you are a lover of the 60’s rock-n-roll sound and delta blues you will enjoy this CD. It is The Brymers at their best. It is The Brymers sounds’ of “Yesterday” and their new sounds’ of “Today.” The result is a rock-n-roll sound where The Allman Brothers meet The Kinks!
