On their 9th studio album the "Masters
of Rock Rollin Blues" have like never before succeeded in
translating the steamingly hot energy of their live shows into
a brilliant studio sound. "Heart on Fire" contains 10 infectious
Juke Joints originals. The rhythm section, consisting of drummer
and vocalist Peter Kempe and bass player Derk Korpershoek, provides
their customary fire-proof foundation, Michel Staat steers his
guitar increasingly outside oft-trodden paths and Sonny van der
Broek continuously pokes up the fire with his tighter than tight
harmonica power. The Dr. Ross classic "Cat's Squirrel" and crowd favourite-to-be
"Funny Little Valentine", written by Australian
rockabilly singer/guitarist Louis King, receive the passionate,
greasy Juke Joints treatment and seamlessly fit in the coherence
of the album.
The album was recorded in the Westmaas Studios and was produced by Rene van Broekhoven and The Juke Joints. It includes guest appearances by Roland Bakker (Julian Sas Band) on piano and keyboards and Ben van den Dungen on saxofoon.
The contact with Eddy "the Chief" Clearwater, whose latest (Alligator Records) album "West Side Strut" was recorded in the Rax Trax Studios with renowned producer Ronnie Baker Brooks, opened up the doors to that same studio for The Juke Joints and in June 2010 they made the long-awaited trip to the home of the blues, Chicago. There they recorded what surely must be The Juke Joints` magnum opus, with a collection of songs that of course includes plenty of the high energy rhythm `n` blues, and shuffles and boogies that have earned them so much praise. However, there are also ventures up, until now, un-trodden paths. Stand out tracks include "Stax Sound", which has that inimitable Stax soul groove that Peter Kempe experienced when visiting the legendary Stax studio. There is a heartbreaking ballad, "Goodbye Baby", with some beautiful acoustic guitar and driven on by a massive Hammond organ sound, a track that will no doubt enthuse large, lighter-toting audiences. Guitarist Michel Staat shows his wizardry in the enthralling slow blues "Bad Bad Feeling" and "Strollin` On Lincoln Avenue." is a jazzy instrumental, highlighting Sonnyboy van den Broek`s awesome talents on the chromatic harp. SPECIAL GUESTS Female blues guitar slinger Ana Popovic shines on slideguitar on "Make A Stand" which evokes fond memories of John Lee Hooker. Absolutely top-notch is the closing track "Going To Chicago", written by Ronnie Baker Brooks especially for this album, with Eddy Clearwater really letting loose on electric guitar. Producer Ronnie Baker Brooks belts out some great guitar solos here as well, and provides solid support on vocals and rhythm guitar. A highly diverse album it has become indeed, which is to be released worldwide and which should win The Juke Joints global recognition as one of the most energetic rock rollin` blues bands around..

In 1994 Willie Foster met the Juke Joints when performing at the Delta Blues Festival in Greenville, Mississippi. They did a short tour together and became very good friends. After Willie`s second CD "My Life", with Bobby Mack, he played more then ever and was invited at the famous Blues Estafette in Holland. The Juke Joints did a Holland tour in 1999 together with Willie, which was a very big succes. This CD is one of these concerts!
