The wildly eclectic New Rhythm & Blues Quintet, better known to its worldwide
legion of adoring fans as NRBQ (or just the Q!), is the only band on the planet
that can play rockabilly, bar-band blooze, Beatles sound-alikes and Sun Ra-style
free jazz in the same set and remain standing.
The Q immediately followed their second album Scraps with 1973’s equally
terrific Workshop. Gadler had departed, reducing the Quintet to its customary
foursome (natch!), but the band never missed a beat with an album that featured
the hypnotically chugging “Come On If You’re Coming,” the mouth-watering “RC
Cola and a Moon Pie” and the ultra-prophetic “Get That Gasoline Blues.”
