Album Notes
Read over 20 RED HOT REVIEWS for "Primate Blues" below!!! ...by rock legend Keith Reid from Procol Harum, Erika Lopez from Mix Magazine, and others.

Band leader/drummer, FRANKIE LAROCKA (David Johansen, Bryan Adams, Noel Redding, Jon Bon Jovi) is joined by JACK O'NEILL (Earl Slick Band, Painted Faces) on vocals, JUMPIN' JORDAN LEE on the Fender bass, BOB DEL ROSSO on guitar (with a guest appearance on guitar by EARL SLICK, legendary collaborator with DAVID BOWIE and JOHN LENNON, on tracks #1, #8, and #12) to form a true blues band that has earned the respect of many on today's circuit. Hot Monkey Love captures the heart and soul of legendary blues musicians in this 12-noon to 12-midnight recording.

The talents of these four artists have earned them the privilege of performing, recording, and touring with Bryan Adams, David Johansen, Earl Slick Band, Scandal, Noel Redding, Bon Jovi, Luther Vandross, David Sanborn, Scotty Moore, D.J. Fontana, and The Painted Faces. Now combining their passion for the blues, Jack "Beau Jack" O'Neill, Frankie "Spider" LaRocka, "Cowboy" Bob Del Rosso and Jumpin' Jordan Lee have come together from all genres of music giving their blues band, Hot Monkey Love, an old but new sound with a vibe and edge that honors the works of Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, and John Lee Hooker, along with their original material, and more.

In Memoriam: Hot Monkey Love are deeply saddened to report that the Head Monkey, drummer extraordinaire, Frankie "Spider" LaRocka, passed away on May 12, 2005, joining rock-n-roll royalty in the ultimate jam session in the sky. Go to our website at www.hotmonkeylove.us for a link to obituary.

Utterly sexy!
I have thought of a lot of things to write, but I'm no journalist. So here is how the thing makes me *feel*: whenever I got it on (and that's a lot) I feel like going out and grab the next handsome guy I can find. That's what it does. Brilliant. Love it to bits. Utterly sexy.

This is a great album by a very talented group. I had the second CD (Speakin' Evil) first, and loved it, and then ordered this one. I have not been disappointed. I recommend it highly.

Wet and wooly Hot Monkey Love
The creme de la creme of New York city’s blues scene have come together to sing the blues as Hot Monkey Love. Vocalist Jack O’Neil sings like he has been stung by king sized bee, while guitarist Bob Del Rosso wails on solos which will make your hair stand on end. Bassist Jordan Lee and drummer/band leader, Frankie LaRocka set down an unstoppable blues rock groove, as the band crashes through blues classics like Boom, Boom, Shame, Shame, Shame, I’m A King Bee. Champagne and Reefer, Rockin’ Daddy, Crosseyed Cat and 99 Pounds to name a few of the highlights. They are perhaps the tightest blues band around town, which is no surprise as Hot Monkey Love members have played with the likes of David Johansen, Bryan Adams, Bon Jovi and Luther Vandross, to name a few. Hot Monkey Love roar throughout, resurrecting the spirits of the greats — John Lee Hooker, Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters It is no surprise cdbaby keeps running out of this CD. It sizzles. I can’t wait to hear them do more originals. Everybody needs some Hot Monkey Love. Get yours now.

what more can you sayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?


My Bro was living with Aids for 12 years. The day he died I was listening to Rain. Played it about a zillion times as I grieved and let go. I will be 90 years old and will still love HML's version of that song. The instruments. The vocals. It is a beautiful, priceless, intangible yet powerful enity. As for the rest of the cd , it rocks.
