“The Mustangs are a 5-piece band from S E UK who are steadily building a following beyond their own locality. "Let It Roll" is a 12 track album of original compositions with the bulk of the material written by Adam Norsworthy either alone or in collaboration with other band members. It is always good to hear original songs & diverse musical arrangements, The Mustangs seeming to inhabit an area somewhere between '60's Brit R&B & "roughed-up" electric country.” Charlie Gray, Blues FreePress. “"Let it Roll" is the eagerly anticipated third album release by high energy Blues exponents The Mustangs and sees them capitalising on their fast growing live reputation with an album packed full of blistering, high octane self-penned blues tunes. Comprising Adam Norsworthy (vocals/guitar), Mark Hobbs (guitar/backing vocals), Derek Kingaby (blues harp), Dave Bulbeck (bass/backing vocals) and Brian Iredale (drums), this new release follows in the footsteps of the bands first two albums of blues covers, and certainly showcases their healthy respect for the blues tradition, but also allows them free reign to stamp their own unique song writing personality on a collection of songs guaranteed to surprise and delight in equal measure. Sure enough The Mustangs press all the right buttons on the more standard electric bluesy numbers such as "Just Let It Roll", "Prohibition Blues" and "I Hates To See You Go" which are all established favourites in the bands live repertoire, but it is when they start to push at the genres boundaries that this powerful five-piece really come into their own. Dave Bulbecks' "Soft Top Down" is one of those songs that you can imagine listening to, cruising along some long, deserted American Highway, with its simple yet insistent guitar riff carried along by solid driving bass and drums. But The Mustangs also have the innate ability to crank things down a notch on quieter numbers such as the Kingaby / Hobbs-penned "No Time For The Blues" (my own personal favourite), which contains some wonderfully atmospheric harp by Derek Kingaby and a powerful yet restrained Adam Norsworthy vocal.This is without doubt an album that highlights, harnesses and hints at the bands live potential, but at the end of the day you have to have quality songs, and fortunately The Mustangs do have them - in abundance.” Ken brown Gig Base magazine
