3.0 out of 5 stars A mixture of soul and blues 27 Jan 2014
By G. E. Harrison TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The first track on the album 'Tobacco Road' is a nice straight modern blues with great harp from guest Kim Wilson but this is a very varied record with the next track 'Sweet tenderness' being almost 70s-style smooth Philly soul. Baltimore-based Ursula is an experienced singer (I did wander if she was the daughter of Jerry Ricks but this doesn't seem to be the case) who is equally at home singing blues or soul, and her version of Bobby Rush's 'Mary Jane' is a perfect blend of the two. Other guests on the record include current Fabulous Thunderbird guitarist Johnny Moeller and the excellent young guitarist “Monster” Mike Welch, while the keyboard player in the house band Kevin Anker is very good throughout. I found the record a bit of a strange mix, this kind of Bobby Rush- Walter Wolfman Washington hybrid of blues and soul has always been popular in the southern States but has never really caught on over here, when it works as on the soul ballad 'Due' - complete with strings and a nice Peter Green-style guitar solo - it is fine but too many of the songs seemed to fall between the two genres to me. I also found that Ursula's voice and her songs weren't quite strong enough to carry the whole record but this is an accomplished debut and I'll be interested to hear what she does in future.
