MP3 Stormy Mondays - Rainy Days And Broken Hearts
Rock ''n'' Soul, almost Americana music coming from Spain - no wonder they''re the only Spanish band that ever played Woodstock. Featuring special guest Elliott Murphy, this CD was played before several Bruce Springsteen concerts on his 1999 European Tour

The Stormy Mondays have just released their debut album, Rainy Days And Broken Hearts.
If you give it a spin, you will find everything from rocking songs with aggressive horn sections to delicate acoustic ballads with a folkie accent, including pure soul and even a gospel tune with southern twin-guitar harmonies. The album will delight any roots-rock lover, with the added surprise of listening to an European band playing with such authority a type of music mainly associated with America.
Their sound comes close to that of bands like Counting Crows, Wallflowers, The Jayhawks or Del Amitri, but also to The Blues Brothers Band, Bruce Springsteen, The Black Crowes or even The Allman Brothers. The great Elliott Murphy puts the icing on the cake, adding vocals and acoustic guitar to Blue As The Night, the album''s first single, and playing as well in a couple more tunes.
The album was recorded in Bunker Estudios (Spain) and mastered in Metropolis Mastering (London) by Tim Young, probably UK''s most respected engineer (his client list includes Van Morrison and Eric Clapton.)
