Call it Blues, Jazz, or RandB, this terrific album could be the crown jewel in Cornell Dupree's solo career. Bluesy and funky, this treat seems to hit it's mark square in the bullseye - parts King Curtis, parts Booker T, parts Kenny Burrell, parts Albert Collins - Cornell Dupree is a polished vet who unearthed the rarest gem in the twilight of an outstanding career - a career spanning effort boiled down to eleven songs. I hope fans don't have to wait 13 years for another album, because Dupree could have a renaissance like Booker T, Andre Williams, Loretta Lynn, and Dr. John. I don't know who anybody in the band is but they simmer when they should simmer and boil when they should boil. Props to Dialtone records for ringing this one
