Mitch Ryder Looks Back On His Anniversary Tour

According to Mitch Ryder, music renders one’s age irrelevant, so the legendary singer has never factored in rounds under the sun in his career which started almost six decades ago and carried on, with and without THE DETROIT WHEELS, into the present, the veteran’s last studio album “Georgia Drift” issued earlier this year. Yet his 2020 tour saw the American artist celebrate his 75th birthday, while in Germany whence a concert was recorded – to be released on January 26th.

Bearing the title of “The Roof Is On Fire” and comprised of two CDs or LPs, it features mostly Mitch’s solo numbers – as opposed to hits he laid down with the aforementioned ensemble – including the covers of classics such Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues” and Jimmy Cliff’s “Many Rivers To Cross” plus “Heart Of Stone” by THE ROLLING STONES, whose variety, given Ryder’s stamp, shows the breadth of his expertise. A nice roundup of the great material.
