Rance Allen Group Releases 25th Album, “Live From San Francisco”


The legendary trio of blood brothers, The Rance Allen Group, released its 25th album “Live From San Francisco” (Tyscot Records) and a separate DVD of it on October 28th. The group pioneered the fusion of R&B-styled rhythms with spiritual and message music themes in the 1970s. It’s a winning style that has won them fans as varied as American Idol’s Randy Jackson, Kirk Franklin, `80s rockers Huey Lewis & The News and Fred Hammond. They continue to labor in this unique musical vineyard on the new eleven-song set that was recorded live at the Bay area’s Richmond Memorial Auditorium.

Rance Allen was a guest on the “Get Up! Mornings with Erica Campbell” syndicated radio show on 10/28 @8:11 AM EST to talk about the project. He’ll also be a guest on “Sunday Praise with J.J. Hairston” this Sunday 10/30 on Hot 93.7 FM in Hartford, CT and with “The Big Rube & Sctonda Morning Show” on 1380 AM in N. Augusta, SC this Wednesday, November 3rd. Over the next week, Allen will also be a guest on the syndicated program “The Nightly Spirit with Darlene McCoy” and SOAR Radio. He’s going to hit other radio stations around the country such as WLOU (Louisville, KY), WMBM (N. Miami, FL) and KUT (Austin, TX) with more to follow.

The album’s first radio single “All Day Long” is a warm, uplifting song of praise set to a smooth and mellow R&B flavored groove with a jazzy horn arrangement. It climaxes in a crescendo of cymbals, drums, thick harmonies and Rance Allen’s lion-like roar of a wail. The project features new songs such as the ballad “My Delight” (led by Steve Allen), the quartet-styled stomper ‘Hold On” and the soulful tune “Vessel” that is guaranteed to raise the heaviest of roofs.
