For true soul fans this is a must buy! This man can sing his heart, and yours, to pieces. At his best, as on this album, he is only to be compared to great artists like: Otis Redding, Marvin gaye, Bobby Womack and Stevie wonder. On tunes like "It's not the Spotlight", and "Friday the 13'th Child", bobby shows his full range as singer and songwriter extraordinaire.

An icon of the 70's, Bobby "Blue" Bland. Powerful lyrics, albeit on familiar themes, an exemplary lesson in how to sing the blues. These songs may well move you to tears. Musically flawless delivery from a stellar cast of musicians including the legendary Larry Carlton. I first hear this album 35 years ago and it may be of its time but I can guarantee that it will stick in your mind for a long time after your first listen. Brilliant!
