Not as dazzling as 'Outward Bound', but still excellent,

OK, so Sonny Landreth doesn't have the strongest singing voice in rock - as some of his critics like to point out - but his singing is prefectly serviceable, the tunes are mostly strong and his slide guitar playing is outrageously brilliant. Listen to the guitar solo on 'Creole Angel' - no one else has ever made a guitar sound like that!
Previous album 'Outward Bound' had even more dazzling guitar playing (maybe it was just the first time I had heard Landreth in his own right, rather than as John Hiatt's sideman) but this is a more than adequate follow-up.
If you like slide guitar then you probably already own this: if you haven't heard Sonny Landreth yet you're missing out.
