The new album was recorded at G. Bluey’s Juke Joint in Long Island City, New

York, on October 24 and 25, 2022, and features Popa Chubby (guitar and vocals),

backed by his all-star “Beast Band,” which consists of Mike Merritt - bass (Conan

O’Brien, Billy Gibbons); Mike Dimeo - keyboards (Johnny Winter, Tommy James);

and Stefano Giudici - drums.

“This record is a reunion in a lot of ways,” stated Popa Chubby. “Rejoining with

my long-time ally and bassist extraordinaire Mike Merritt and recording in my old

Manny’s Car Wash engineer Glen Forrest’s studio. The icing on the cake was

Mike Dimeo on keys. Add theCenturion Stefano Giudici on drums and you’ve got

some heavy blues rock! It’s a live best of for the ages!”
