Throwback: Robert Randolph & The Family Band-Walk Don’t Walk

 Robert Randolph & The Family Band recorded a version of Prince’s “Walk, Don’t Walk” for their 2010 We Walk This Road album. Randolph’s mastery of the pedal steel guitar dominates the cover with Danyel Morgan’s gospel style singing. Randolph explained the story behind the cover to Rolling Stone in 2010 when the album came out and said that Prince even gave his approval. Prince also told Randolph he was the “best guitar player he’d ever seen” after Randolph and his band gave an electrifying performance at the 2004 Grammys. Robert Randolph & The Family Band are getting ready to release their new album, Got Soul in February of 2017.
