Texas Guitarist Mike Morgan reunites with his former Black Top labelmate Lee McBee and longtime friend Randy McAllister on Stronger Every Day, featuring all original material except a reading of Gatemouth Brown’s classic, “Okie Dokie Stomp.”
Further highlights include McBee’s pleading vocal on “Sweet Angel,” punctuated by Mike’s fiery solo, and McAllister’s soulful interpretations of “Where’s the Love”, “When I Get Back Home” and the title track, “Stronger Every Day.”
