"This is no run-of-the-mill cruise ship soul revue, son. This is a world-class rock and roll band putting its exciting twist on some stone-cold classics (and playing some originals as well). Highlights for me include crackling versions of Johnny Daye's 1967 Stax side "Wat'll I Do For Satisfaction," the Etta James/Sugar Pie DeSanto party-starter "In the Basement," The Vel-Vets' northern soul standard "I Gotta Find Me Somebody," Chuck Bridges' 1966 hip-shaker "Don't You Make Me Cry," and the Eddie Floyd/Janis Joplin classic "Raise Your Hand." Any super-fan of '60s/'70s soul will have to admit that the song selection is indeed magnificent. And when it comes to executing a timeless rhythm & blues style with real deal rock and roll energy, you simply won't find a more capable band. These guys themselves are super-fans of classic soul, and that love comes fully through on this blockbuster of an album." - Lord Rutledge, Faster And Louder

"It’s Soul/R & B colored by rock that the rock players can’t help but inject into it. If you are a fan of Mighty Manfred, and we are, you will love this album. We like the party vibe of “In The Basement”." - Paul Blowfish

"I was just listening to the album while driving around Las Vegas. Love it, so good!" - Luke Metz, Shanda & The Howlers

"Here it's 60's Rhythm & Blues in question, Soul and Northern Soul!
With an excellent mix of little-known covers and compositions that are perfectly up to scratch and blend into a perfect album from start to finish... years…" - Voix de Garage Grenoble

The Magnificent are eight Hollywood rock-scene veterans who have previously hidden their secret love for powerhouse rhythm and blues, but now reveal it to the world in a savage show. The band’s songbook is loaded with deep-in-the-crates soul gems from the mid-sixties to the early seventies. Playing choice selections from the likes of Solomon Burke, Rex Garvin and Big Mama Thornton, the band rearranges the songs to showcase their individual specialties, while keeping the essentials of the material in place, particularly the non-stop danceable rhythms.

The Magnificent's full length release "Monolithic" includes original material alongside covers from the likes of Eddie Floyd, Janis Joplin, and the Knight Brothers. Recorded at Kitten Robot studio in Historic Filipinotown with Paul Roessler (Screamers, Twisted Roots), the tracks were mastered by soul veteran Rodney Mills at his Masterhouse lab in Atlanta. Rodney’s track record includes sessions with soul godfathers such as the Meters, James Brown and George Clinton.

With two frenetic front men backed by a six-man wrecking crew and two torso-twisting go-go dancers, the Magnificent are a revue to be reckoned with, a red-hot retro blast of garage shakin' soul.
