It was recorded in Finland with a Finnish rhythm and blues band called the "Hogs of Rhythm" (featuring "Lester Peabody", other members of the of "The Barnshakers" and "Whistle Bait", and the vocal group "The Relics"). The new record will be released on the Goofin' Records label with an impressive roster featuring artists like "The Barnshakers", "Marti Brom", "High Noon", "The Go-Getters", "Ray Collins Hot Club", "Sean Mencher", "Shaun Young", "The Ranch Girls", "The Ragtime Wranglers", "Li'l Esther", "Carlos and the Bandidos", "Wildfire Willie and the Ramblers", etc.
Locally, Little Rachel is working on some new material and upcoming shows with "The Rhythm Busters", out of Lawrence. "We hope to be very active in the Kansas City area in the coming year, while I am in town."
Also should be mentioned that Little Rachel is now in a new band. She has joined forces with the Honeybees and Miss Sophia Wolff to form a 4-part soulful girl group "The She Demons".
