"Satan's Horn" came out of nowhere in the early 1990s, seemingly heralding the arrival of a great new blues performer. Pity that Ray Bailey didn't produce another studio album until 2012, a gap of 19 years. Still, that does not diminish the impact of this excellent release marred only by very flat production.
Bailey isn't reinventing the wheel here, exactly, but neither is he playing it safe or resting on old blues laurels. He brings his blues up to date by dealing with contemporary issues such as drug use on the title track and also employs unusually vivid wordplay throughout much of the album.
Guitaristy Bailey varies things with a couple acoustic numbers as well as slow burners such as "Bad Times, Sad Times."
He caps off an otherwise all-original debut with Lowell Fulson's "Love Her With a Feeling." (hudbannon)
