I have to say that Millie Jackson's Hard Times CD is worth a listen. Its songs focus on going through the rough times of life and surviving. Even the CD cover catches attention featuring Millie in a grocery checkout line with a shocked expression on her face after hearing the bill! Lol!
Our course "Mess on your Hands" is the main album gem, especially for fans of Millie's hardcore persona, but "Hard Times", "We're Gonna Make It" and "I Don't want to Cry" are great blues survival songs to listen to during rough life situations.
Although the CD is not without flaws, it is definitely worth a listen for Millie Jackson fans.
