4.0 out of 5 stars well worth a listen, 2 Dec 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Phantom Blues (Audio CD)
if you are not familiar with taj mahal then you would be better of starting with the "very best of" double collection - if you have that, or if you want to check out a studio lp that doesn't overlap (bar 1 track) - the fact that only 1 track from this lp made it onto the "best of" should in no way put you off - this is as good a starting point as any. well worth checking out. top draw light rock blues.

This review is from: Phantom Blues (Audio CD)
This record is mainly Taj doing old R&B material like Doc Pomus's "Lonely Avenue" and Little Milton's "We're goin to make it" and doing it very well with a great band that includes contributions from both his British keyboard players/MDs - Jon Cleary and Mick Weaver. There are also some stellar guests - Eric Clapton plays some really nice blues guitar on "Here in the dark" and "Love her with a feeling" and Bonnie Raitt sings beautifully with Taj on "I need your loving". The record also ends with "The car of your dreams" Taj entering Little Axe-style modern blues territory that he was to revisit later with "Squat that rabbit.

Taj contributes one new song to the party and what a song, "Lovin' in my baby's eyes" is a fabulous song, worth the price of the CD on its own (and I really mean that.) With it's beautiful melody underpinned by plucked National guitar and Taj's harmonica, it's a song that really grows on you and must be one of the best songs Taj has ever written. "Phantom Blues" mainly carries on from Taj's previous album the Grammy winning "Dancin' the blues" but "Lovin' in my baby's eyes" is a wonderful bonus.
