Editors’ Notes

NRBQ were always underrated as a studio act—as they produced their own records, the band were subtly brilliant. Yet at their core they were a bar band, which is why God Bless Us All is so important. Recorded on April 18, 1987, at Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel, in Providence, R.I., this album is exuberant, good-time rock ‘n’ roll of the highest order. This band proved that reckless party music could still have soul, while their revivals of '50s-style R&B and rockabilly workouts showed that early American rock wasn't simply fodder for nostalgia but a vital American ritual. The wired-up power pop of “Crazy Like a Fox” and “Me and the Boys” is the sound on which NRBQ built their reputation. But the set’s true revelation is a slow cover of Billy Stewart’s sweet soul ballad “Sitting in the Park,” which the band had been playing since 1970. Terry Adams, the group’s longtime lead vocalist, leads his bandmates in a performance of garage-born grace and authentic sweetness.

Customer Reviews

The BEST LIVE Q - 12 Bars at the Zoo

If you don't know how awesome the Q and the Whole Wheat Horns can be... you can get a glimpse into their absolute genius state of jam in this awesome live set. I didn't get to see this Providence RI show live but I saw them so many times in the 70's and 80's (Smith College, UMass, Hanger One, North Fourty, Frogs, etc.) that this album brings back all those awesome shows to my foggy memory banks. "Here comes Terry" and "Shake, Rattle and Roll" are my two favorite tracks here. BUY IT!! You won't be sorry.

one of the best

I just got this CD and it is one of my favorite Q recordings!! Luv it !!

Often called "the world's greatest bar band," NRBQ are that rare group that's eclectic, stylistically innovative, and creatively ambitious while also sounding thoroughly unpretentious and accessible. At its best, NRBQ's music casually mixes up barrelhouse R&B, British Invasion pop, fourth-gear rockabilly, exploratory free jazz, and dozens of other flavors while giving it all a stomp-down rhythm that makes fans want to dance and expressing a sense of joy and easy good humor that comes straight...
