This is a fairly early JLW album. It features the famous Memphis Horns playing on a heap of great tracks. If you like Robert Cray, you'll love this.

A songwriter's dream, R&B Soul Blues 3 Aug. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
One of, if the not "the" greatest albumn Walker has put out. His raw "saxaphone" voice cuts through with lyrics that are fresh and definitly lived. JLW's guitar work is what sets him apart from so many of the blues players of his generation, there are so many guitarists who don't know of his work and its definitly top notch. This is a great albumn to have in the background or to study note for note, worth the money.
