I can't understand the two star review by the first reviewer! True, this cd is not in the same mold as "Tell 'Em What Your Name Is" and "Scandalous", but what the cd does do is link Black Joe Louis closer to Mick Collins. There is the funk and soul of the previously mentioned cds, but this cd chooses to include some full blown rockers. Do not construe this as a sell out, but consider this a nod to the most prolific black artist who has melded soul, funk, garage, and punk into one mean ass SOB. Of course, I am refering to Mick Collins. Buy it, you won't be disappointed!
