No stranger to top flight musical partnerships, legendary singer-songwriter and Buffalo Springfield/CSN/CSN&Y principal Stephen Stills unites with fellow guitar slinger Kenny Wayne Shepherd and venerable Electric Flag keyboardist Barry Goldberg to form the new all-star blues-rock supergroup The Rides. The multi-generational outfit's debut album, "Can't Get Enough", is set for CD, digital download, and vinyl release on Monday August 26 via Provogue Records.

Featuring 4 co-written originals, a handful of covers, and a vintage, previously unrecorded Stills gem "Can't Get Enough" was inspired by - and is an homage to - the now classic 1968 album Super Session, which featured Stills on guitar on one side, and the late Mike Bloomfield on the other (Bloomfield had founded Electric Flag with Goldberg, who also played on Super Session, as did Blood, Sweat & Tears keyboardist Al Kooper).

The project began with Stills and Goldberg writing together at their mutual manager Elliot Roberts' recommendation. "It was like finding a long lost soul brother" says Goldberg (who hadn't met Stills before, their shared 1968 credit notwithstanding). "We connected on so many things, started jamming, and soon had begun writing our first song."
