There are no guitar fireworks, shrieks, or wails here. The tone is slow, warm, and relaxed. King has a mellow, sly and expressive voice and his lyrics are direct and often funny. He and his band work together like they'd known each other for decades (which likely they had). It's just delightful music in every way. I am eternally grateful to the small label that captured this music (Al King died shortly after the record was made). Every time I listen to it, I wonder how many other wonderful artists there are out there who decided not to bother with the greased pole of the music business. (Mark K. McDonough)
