It's hard to understand why Sue Foley isn't better known. The blues genre is not the best route to fame and fortune these days. And there never has been too close a relationship between talent and success, less so now than ever. Sue Foley is certainly not short on talent being, among other things, a fine guitarist: her guitar playing (acoustic and electric) is not flashy but very satisfying, finely crafted or rough-and-ready as the occasion demands. She has also developed as a singer. Her girlish voice is sometimes Dylanesque and at other times reaches much further back into blues traditions, but no less her own voice, invariably expressive and appealingly easy on the ear. She also writes a lot of her own material but it can be difficult to sort this out from the covers so seamlessly do her own songs blend into the background of older stuff on her albums.
All these qualities are present on Love Comin' Down but to a greater extent and in a more full and rounded way than some of her earlier albums.... The tone of the album seems to me to be perhaps not exactly cheerful but certainly warm, uplifting even. The musicians do a solid job throughout maintaining the steady rockin' groove that pervades. Altogether a brilliant album. Highlights? Well there isn't a bad track but Two Trains, Love Comin' Down itself and Let My Tears Fall Down are my current favourites.
