Robben Ford is an extremely under-rated guitarist who has done a great deal to bring electric blues guitar into the classy arena that it deserves to be in.
I have to admit that I wasn't overly bothered by Ford's last album release so I wasn't sure how this was going to sound. Fortunately this is a large improvement with some excellent songs, classy guitar playing and tight band arrangements.
Of the covers Keep On Running is perhaps the most interesting rethink.
Ford's voice is quite mellow and I have read before that on this album perhaps it comes across a little weak when you would expect a harder edged voice. I can't say I found this at all, his voice merely making the tracks seem more soulful.
I enjoyed this album and hope you do too.

I have to confess that the name on Robben Ford was unknown to me until I heard the arresting thump of the title track in a certain national music store and was prompted to investigate further. I'm glad I did.
Blues guitarist Ford has been in the business for 30 years, having started backing Joni Mitchell during her "Hissing Of Summer Lawns" period. He's been making his own albums for the past 10 years, and ploughing a decent furrow of blues mixed with modern soul to great acclaim but limited commercial success. This album, following a change of record label, should change that.
For a start the inclusion of three 1960s/70s classics should help. Most people will be familiar with Spencer Davis Group's immortal reading of "Keep On Running", ditto Elvis Costello's version of Nick Lowe's "Peace Love And Understanding" and Cream's "Badge". Ford's treatment of these is duly respectful and faithful to the originals, but just different enough, with the addition of a heat-seeking horn section on the first and backing vocals from Siedah Garrett and Mavis Staples on the other two.
Ford and his guitar really come into their own on the remainder of the album, which could be described as good rocking blues with a hefty helping here and there of the soul of the Muscle Shoals type, courtesy of the horn section, led by Bob Malach, with Edgar Winter guesting. John Mayall also pops up to lend his blues harp. The excellent backing band is completed by Jimmy Earl on bass and Steve Potts or Toss Panos on percussion, and they all sound top-notch, as is the production and sound quality.
As for Robben Ford himself his guitar playing is wonderfully liquid and loose-limbed, absolutely right for the genre and up there with the likes of Eric Clapton and Carlos Santana for power and dexterity.

If you like your blues with a 70s rock feel then you will love this album. Blues guitarist Robben Ford has been in the business for 30 years and making albums of his own for 10; this one, with its covers of classic rock/pop numbers immortalised by the likes of Spencer Davis Group, Cream and Nick Lowe, is a determined effort to reach a wider audience.
Listening to his guitar work the likes of Eric Clapton, Chris Rea and Carlos Santana came to mind, he is that good. On this album he is backed by a whitehot band of musicians, with guest spots from Edgar Winter and John Mayall to name but two, and the production quality matches the calibre of these.
The only slight drawback is Ford's vocal; he ain't no blues singer (but then neither is Clapton) and sounds rather immature, considering his long experience. This is only really a problem on the title track and "Peace Love and Understanding", because one tends to compare with the well known originals. On all the other tracks, especially in the second half of the album, where there are more firmly blues numbers, the quality of instrumentation conquers everything. A highly enjoyable album.
