Robben Ford came to prominence as a rival to Larry Carlton and played with the group LA Express, before notching up his own credits as a session man for Joni Mitchell, George Harrison, Barbra Streisand & Little Feat. He even toured with Miles Davis in 1987. This album was one of his early solo outings and dates from 1990, and it immediately rocketed him into guitar aristocracy. In 'Talk To your Daughter' Robben defines his Blues tonality with aplomb and walks the tone/chops line like a tight-rope, teasing you ear with solos that sometimes lean over the abyss but never overbalances. There is a range of songs with a variety of Blues harmonies, lyrical depth and musically very rich, replete with technique for the budding session player.

Great guitar - Terrible production

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.

This is a great album and repays repeated listening. But do you want to rip it and listen on your phone or via your bluetooth speaker? - if yes, then you probably have a problem because it will likely sound dreadful. But play it on your standard portable cd player or hifi and everything sounds great. Check the internet for CDs issued by Warners and it becomes a little clearer who is to blame. It's all so some record company president can have a ferrari and a bentley - forget the people who actually want to listen to it.

Blues tonality is really specific, and very often the tempatation for accomplished musicians like Robben is to play too many notes that belay their experience of other musical forms, notably jazz. In 'Talk To your Daughter' Robben walks the tonality line like a tight-rope, teasing you ear with solos that sometimes lean over the abyss but never overbalance.
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.

This not a bad album by any means but it fails to cover any new ground & is really rather a limited piece of work.

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.

Fantastic album, if you need convincing that Robben is a superb guitarist then this is the album to get. Having seen him live during his last visit to London, I'm a Robben Ford fan without doubt.
