Very Good

  • Apr 1, 1999

Whereas this release is not quite a classic, the songs are very spunky. The lyrics stand out from the standard blues lines. The guitar style is quite fresh sounding. A nice blues/soul flavor with ten solid if not spectacular tracks.

Wiki

Stinging urban blues by way of Texas and Memphis distinguish Robert Cray's major-label debut, which followed three strong independent releases. Here he fleshes out his sound with bursts of brassy Southern soul courtesy of theMemphis Horns, but keeps his pungent, steely guitar solos out front in an engaging dialogue with his plaintive vocals. Released in 1986,Strong Persuadersignaled that Cray, as a writer--like his contemporaryStevie Ray Vaughan--had something to say about his interior life beyond the usual bluesman's laments, an approach that pays homage to the music's rich traditions while suggesting new areas of inquiry.--David McGee
