Rikk Manning sent us over his new single “Right out of the Gate” and we’ve been checking out his mastery and this song for a few days now. It is a MUST for serious audiophiles! The instrumentals build on this track to a fantastic crescendo and it offers not only expert musicianship but also an amazingly developed arrangement. Bravo!!!
