New release from the Pittsburgh Rock ’n’ Roll icon.

A collection of Grushecky originals plus a cover of The Animals’ classic “We Gotta Get Out Of This Place” Joe Grushecky grew up in the coal mining town of Biddle, Pittsburgh, but after seeing The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show—he soon had a guitar in hand, and a future in rock ahead of him.

Special Education educator by day, his Iron City Houserockers were signed by Cleveland International (home of Meat Loaf/Jim Steinman, Ronnie Spector, Ian Hunter).

The Houserockers’ journey continued across labels with contributions from Hunter, Steve Cropper, Mick Ronson (David Bowie), “Little Steven” Van Zandt, and Bruce Springsteen.
