Clear Channel has made "No Strings, " (produced by Jerry Stucker) available to its radio programmers across the U.S. Adamo's funky groove music is getting outstanding radio airplay and reviews from all over the world.

Stuart Hamilton of wrote, "The first thing that leaps out at you is Adamo's voice. Imagine if you can, it's like Rou Rawls fronting Tower of Power." With this being said, the unique funky sound on "No Strings" was locked in by Mic Gillette, a Tower of Power band member for more than nineteen years. Mic's stellar horn arrangement (utilizing the horn section of past and present members of TOP including Stephen 'Doc' Kupka and Skip Mesquite), is pure smooth groove that sets up the dynamic blending between Adamo's voice and the rhythm section. Edward Blanco of wrote "STRAIGHT UP DEAL reveals the vocal talents of a superior singer." Sandy Shore of gave STRAIGHT UP DEAL a rating of 5 Stars and said, "Think of Adamo as Lou Reed but - funkified."
