Black Magic is a marvelously atmospheric and easy record to listen to - with Sam's resonant and flexible vocals a perfect match for his clean virtuoso guitar playing. Moving on from the scorching Chicago blues captured so unforgettably on West Side Soul - here the accent is on a smooth sound with a potential wider appeal. Hit songs like I Just Want a Little Bit, You Belong to Me and Easy Baby stand at the borderline between blues and soul.
It's All Your Fault, I Have the Same Old Blues throwbacks to more traditional electric blues territory. The version of Freddie King's San-Ho-Zay illustrates the live and mutual sharing and learning that occurred in the hotbed of the blues talent. No doubt if Sam had survived he would have taken his place alongside the likes of Jimi Hendrix. As things stand lets just be grateful for this belated issue. (Keith Fitton, Rock-N-Reel)
