It was great to play a brand new song for you by Peter Rivera, the original lead singer and drummer with Rare Earth. His new album is titled It Is What It Is, and what a treat to hear his strong vocals again. He hasn't lost his touch at all, as you heard on the song Do You Wanna Rock. He sure did! I'm always pleased to help you discover something new by a classic heritage artist!
