New Release from
The Sully Band
“Let’s Straighten It Out”

With Let’s Straighten It Out!, (released via Belly Up / Blue Élan Records), Robert “Sully” Sullivan and his soul-infused nine-piece band take us on a journey through the ups and downs of love by way of ten classic ‘60s and ‘70s R&B tunes.

Produced by Grammy Award-winner Chris Goldsmith (Blind Boys of Alabama, Ben Harper, Charlie Musselwhite, Big Head Todd), Let’s Straighten It Out! is like a love letter written in album hits and deep cuts from icons who paved the way. Treasured tunes like Billy Preston’s “Nothing from Nothing” and Jackie Wilson’s “Higher and Higher” share the track list with lesser-known nuggets like Ray Charles’ “Hallelujah, I Love Her So,” and Shuggie Otis’ “Ice Cold Daydream.” Other treats include a New Orleans approach to Albert Collins’ “If You Love Me Like You Say,” which features young blues guitar phenom Anthony Cullins, and “When The Battle is Over,”a rollicking version of Dr. John’s tune that was also covered long-ago by Aretha Franklin, this time done as a duet with the amazing Rebecca Jade.

Anchored by Grammy Award-winning bass slayer, James East (Eric Clapton, Elton John, Michael Jackson, and others), The Sully Band is composed of seasoned, accomplished players from all corners of the globe. The horn section features sax-flute-harp-man Tripp Sprague (Kenny Loggins, The Little River Band, Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, The Four Tops) and trumpet and flugelhorn player Steve Dillard (The Righteous Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd).
