When the Washington-state-based bluesman cut this album, his second, in 1983, Robert Cray was still four years away from his major-label, US Top 40 hit "Smoking Gun". Nonetheless, his signature sound is intact: horn-coloured Stax-style arrangements, a backbeat laced with funk, Cray's own gospelised vocals, and the stiletto-tipped notes that he rips from his Stratocaster. A few years later Eric Clapton covered the title song; but what's most fun here is listening to Cray pay homage to his good influences. He covers numbers by Johnny "Guitar" Watson and Eddie Floyd, and charges into his guitar solos with a brittle tone and bristling attack that at times recalls the underrated Watson, Cray's mentor Albert Collins and Chicago legend Buddy Guy. But it is really the sound of a modern virtuoso distilling his craft from the raw material of blues history. --Ted Drozdowski

If you are looking for a way into blues music then Robert Cray is certainly a good place to start. This is Cray's second album and worth a place in anyone's collection. Blues songs always tell stories, and this cd is packed with songs of love, hate, despair, hope, relationships, and more. Cray's soulful voice, backed by the band's tight flowing rhythm section and hot saxaphones, is a pleasure to hear. Cray's work has 'class' written all over it, listen to 'Phone Booth', Bad Influence', and 'Where Do I Go From Here' for starters. This album has many strengths, with over half of the material original, and is fresh and relevant on each listening. Nice one, Bob! Go for it - you won't be disappointed. Recommended.

This album will remain the ultimate Robert Cray album for me. It's also a perfect starting point if you want to discover the blues.
Really good compositions - the 'out-of-phase' guitar sound is dead on - and the band swings like H.... What can I say ?

This CD is fantastic... However I do not think it is quite as good as Robert Crays other album "false accusations"... But still highly recommendable
