"the album has the expected solid groove and is clearly a labor of love for Rodgers, who at 64 still sings better than almost any rock ‘n’ roll singer you can name."
"Rodgers breathes new life into songs deeply ingrained in the history of American music."

"Rodgers rediscovers his inner soul man & his voice sounds well preserved"
"Vocal greats roots return. His lusty gutsy core strengths are in seasoned form & it's a welcome trip back to what he does best"
"A fantastic record... just sounds so good" Bob Harris BBC Radio 2
Paul Rodgers, longtime singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist with Bad Company, has partnered with 429 Records and is gearing up for the release of “The Royal Sessions”—a lovingly crafted collection of classic R&B and soul songs re-imagined by the iconic rock singer recorded at Memphis’ Royal Studios, historic home of Willie Mitchell and Hi Records, with many of the musicians who played on the original tracks. Truly a lifetime in the making, Rodgers has come full circle with “The Royal Sessions” as he pays homage to the legendary hits he collected on 45s released on Stax/Volt, Goldwax and Hi Records—recordings by Otis Redding, Albert King and Ann Peebles which made such an indelible impression on the young Rodgers inspiring him to pursue a career as a singer. Produced by Perry Margouleff, “The Royal Sessions” is an extraordinary recording which captures the music in its pure form—live band and vocal takes as performed together at Royal Studios by Rodgers and an all-star roster of legendary musicians.
