This is Solid Rock Blues Band’s 3rd album and we think it’s one of the best albums we’ve ever recorded!
We want the word to get out and want it to be heard. So, we’re offering it for a “whatever you can afford” price.
It took us over a year**, but here it is and it’s all yours for free. Although we’d love to cash in big on this album we believe in sharing the joy of music. And if you can, yes we’d be very grateful if you’d be willing to pay some for all our hard work and effort that went into the recording and production of this album.
** Some of the tracks were recorded even before the “Down For The Count” album was released
- No Limit (On Love)
- Rock And Roll (Suits My Soul)
- Lost Faith, Lost Hope
- It Ain’t No Fun
- Little Girl (You’re Making Me Cry)

Day By Day
– Free Gospel Album (EP)
Released on September 17, 2018 the album “Day By Day” contains six strong, classic, spiritual songs (hymns) in a more modern setting: instead of organs and choirs, you will hear a band using Drums, Bass, Guitars and Harp. Because of this, the album has more or less a “country-folk” feel to it. But, of course we do try to keep close to the original and if you know the songs, you will propably have no problem to sing along!
The title track, Day By Day, was written in 1865. Most of the tracks, except for one original song, date back at least 100 years and have been popular for many decades in congregations all over the world.
We hope to add more tracks to this album in the (near) future.
- Day By Day
- What A Friend We Have in Jesus
- Just A Closer Walk With Thee
- Crown Him With Many Crowns
- Take Me Home
- I’ll Fly Away
The Album (EP) is available as a free download at BandCamp, AudioMack and SoundCloud.

“Rudy has all the chops and lyrical talent to tell a compelling story. Down For The Count, his full-length record, has no less than eight of these — and most of them have something to do with a woman. He Stopped Loving Her Today is the broken-hearted man’s musical manifesto, and the bluesy/country goods don’t stop here” – Drooble.
