There is no doubting that Robben Ford is one of the most talented blues guitarists of his generation, seemingly equally at home playing a bit of rock and jazz fusion when the mood takes him.
My problem with this album, and it is a big problem, is that the appalling late 80's production techniques render this album almost unlistenable for me. I have read one reviewer describing Ford's albums from this era as "...the Steely Dan of the Blues..." this does a huge disservice to both. I think Ford (or Scott Ferguson the producer) is attempting a Dan-like level of fidelity but falling well short of the mark. Worst offenders on this album are the title track in which the keyboard intro has a really grating midi sound almost as if the player has just hit the "blues shuffle" pre-set button and "Help the Poor" where the rhythm track seems to owe quite a lot to Billy Oceans Caribbean Queen (strange but true). This is nasty stuff.
This albums only saving grace is Ford's exemplary guitar playing which is at times breathtaking. I would advise potential purchasers to investigate some of Ford's albums recorded in the 70's, perhaps 1972's "Sunrise" first.
There is a range of songs with different blues harmonies here. A little short on lyrical depth but musically very rich.
For any would-be guitar player this album has lessons that will build your technique for years to come.
Buy it now before it sells out.
Can he play? Yes.
Is the album well produced? Yes, perhaps too much so.
Can he sing? Yes, good voice but banal lyrics. (Okay, so we shouldn't expect a Dylan on every album!)
Nothing new going on here really, just a proficient player plying his trade.
My biggest issue is with the un-necessary use of synthesiser/keyboards. Listening to the album as a whole, it's clear that Mr Ford himself & his fellow players are more than capable but the synth/keyboards fills really fail to contribute anything other than another layer of gloss on an already overblown production. Guilding the lilly indeed.
Better value to be had elsewhere.
His versatility and artistry is remarkable.
A good and varied collection of tracks.
