Mitch Ryder Invites Some Guests Along For His "Detroit Breakout!"

American soul artist Mitch Ryder is entering his fifth decade and decided to pay homage to his past by re-recording some rock classics with an all-star cast of friends. The new release titled "Detroit Breakout!" features fourteen tracks that Mitch Ryder has put his own stamp on with the help of  members of the MC5, New York Dolls and The Stooges, just to name a few.

Ryder kicks things off with his top 5 hit single "Devil With The Blue Dress" with help James Williamson on guitar. He keeps the party going with "Cool Jerk," featuring Wayne Kramer on guitar and Brian Auger on keyboards. Mitch Ryder also performs new, re-imagined covers of some of his favorites like The Standells' "Dirty Water" and "(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone," made popular by The Monkees. The album is one big party with Mitch Ryder at the helm, as he breathes new life into Jim Croce's "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" and Sam Cooke's "Twistin' The Night Away." The album closes with The Isley Brothers' "Shout," as Ryder receives support from Linda Gail Lewis. Mitch Ryder's "Detroit Breakout!" is available on CD and on red-colored vinyl.
