Title - 'Slippin' & Slidin' [EP]
Artist - The Immediate Family
For those not in the know, Quarto Valley Records recording artists The Immediate Family, a rock & roll band composed of longtime friends and legendary musicians Danny Kortchmar (guitar and vocals), Waddy Wachtel (guitar and vocals), Leland Sklar (bass), Russ Kunkel (drums) and Steve Postell (guitar and vocals), have released their new EP and first U.S. release, Slippin’ And Slidin’, available today.
Their names are familiar to anyone who grew up on SoCal rock. In various combinations they have contributed to countless albums by James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, Carole King, and Don Henley, among many others.
What they've never done before is make a record on their own, but after nearly 50 years of playing together, these veterans have finally done just that!
Slippin’ and Slidin’ features some of the group’s most well-known songs, including 'New York Minute' and a live version of 'Werewolves of London,' both of which were co-written by members of the group.
The EP’s title track, 'Slippin’ And Slidin’,' was released as a single in September, and its music video premiered online soon thereafter, and the first single released from the EP, 'Cruel Twist,' was released in June.

Opening with the forceful blues of 'Slippin' & Slidin',' they back that up with a song written by Don Henley, Danny Kortchmar, and Jai Winding, the always-heartfelt, 'New York Minute.'
Next up we get one of my own personal favorites here on this new EP, the foot-tappin' AOR of 'Top Of The Rock,' which is followed by the track known all around the world, composed by Warren Zevon, LeRoy Marinell and Waddy Wachtel, it's 'Werewolves Of London,' with the EP coming to a close on the barroom blues of 'Cruel Twist.'
The Immediate Family, which was formed approximately two years ago, has been performing live and has released new music in Japan, Asia and the U.S. QVR signed The Immediate Family to a multi-album deal, with more music coming in early 2021.
A Denny Tedesco documentary about their iconic careers is also in the queue for release in 2021.
