Description

This new album follows 2015's band-album 'Train of Life' and 2018's solo-album Leo Koster sings Gene Clark - Both albums were well received by reviewers, dj's and music fans. "Rickies Till Dawn" is an upbeat guitar-album with nods to Buffalo Springfield, Dave Edmunds, Tom Petty and Fairport Convention. Guitarists Leo Koster, Han Bavinck and guest player Bart-Jan Baartmans used 26 different guitars, mostly vintage, to lay down a wide range of entertaining guitar sounds. 12-string Rickenbackers ("Rickies"), old Gretsches, Fender Telecaster Stringbender, Strats, Les Pauls and MORE!!!! were used. A lot of time and attention was spent on the vocal harmonies too.

The album features 12 original compositions by Leo Koster. Songs about writers block (The Room), about the WW II bombing of the Den Helder shipyard by the RAF that killed Koster's granddad, about never having enough guitars (That Extra Guitar), about travelling (New Mexico), about the 1840 Lexington-naval disaster (From The Bottom Of The Ocean).

The 5 band members are joined on some tracks by musical friends like Roel Spanjers on keyboards, Sjoerd van Bommel on drums, Charlie McCoy on bass and Lloyd Green on steel guitar.

Since 2010, Leo Koster Band consists of (left to right): Han Bavinck guitar, Walter van Zijl drums, Leo Koster vocals and guitars, Kees Maat accordion and Wurlitzer, Harm van Sleen bass, mandolin.
