Pierced Arrow is the second album from the Rides, a multigenerational fusion of legendary musical souls Stephen Stills, two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and five-time Grammy-nominated guitar great Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Chicago rock/blues keyboardist Barry Goldberg. Called “the blues band of my dreams” by Stills, the trio laid the simmering groundwork for these songs on the debut album Can’t Get Enough, because once they started writing, recording and jamming together, they couldn’t. A passion for the blues isn’t the only thing the band members have in common: Stills and Shepherd share a mutual love of classic cars. In that light, it’s not surprising that the title is a riff on the famed Pierce-Arrow Motor Car Company, a maker of luxury cars in the first four decades of the 20th century. "We had so much fun playing on stage, we had to do it more. Lots of freedom. Kenny and I found a wonderfully exciting knack for playing lead at the same time without a real ‘arrangement,’ just sort of instinctive guessing, from watching each other’s hands. Neil Young and I used to do this with Buffalo Springfield. And the grooves are always right on the money, never rushed or jittery." - Stephen Stills

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
