I own absolutely everything Joe has ever recorded and without hesitation can tell you this is his best in many a year - too much of the recent stuff has been over produced American AOR genre. Joe has got together with a producer (Ethan Johns) that really suits him - you have to go back to Organic when Don Was achieved something similar - simple but beautiful back up from amazing musicians. I understand Johns recorded Joe singing live with the band, and it was all captured analogue on tape - the old fashioned way. Whatever - it works - and what a selection of songs. I played the CD 10 times over straight off, and forced myself to play something else - Otis's "Blue" as it happens.
Buy this, treat your ears, treat your soul, experience some of the best music recorded ever. Joe stick with Ethan.
