Robert Cray continues his journey into soul that he began in earnest with Sweet Potato Pie (a virtual tribute to the late great Otis Redding). Ending an unhappy relationship with his long time label, Mercury Records, Cray has taken his considerable talents to Rykodisc, a label well-known for their hands-off approach, and Cray has used that advantage to create a wonderful album that manages to evoke the sweet soul sound of the 60s Stax/Volt records. Over the years, Cray has honed his voice into a near perfect copy of the soul singers of the 60s, sounding like a cross between Redding and a young Al Green, and on "24-7 Man" his Redding imitation is perfection. Cray has never been so restrained in his guitar skills and so focused on his voice. Gone are the usual blistering blues riffs, and the music, which is heavy on backbeat and bass, uses the guitar to lightly accent the songs rather than to grab the listeners attention. For an attention grabber, he uses his voice...
Another Robert Cray sleeper. Have a number of his releases but never picked this one up. While a little mellow, it has a number of tunes that make you want to sing along. Robert is one of the best and this one does not disappoint.
I never recieved this cd and have not heard back from my corrrespondence to the company who was suppose to send it to me.
