Blues with some Funk Mixed In
T. Burke | PA USA | 08/29/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Chris Cain is remarkable. He has amassed an admirable body of work over the years, despite (or perhaps because of)) lack of widespread acclaim. Great chops, solid writing and gritty vocals. This CD stands out, however, for its tight, funky arrangements. Those crisp, punchy horn fills add a groove to Cain's songs and give each one a distinctive sound. And the rhythm section could make your grandma sound good. Coupled with Cain's many other assets, they make this perhaps the finest of his many fine projects."

"Just saw Chris Cain live for the first time. He stood on stage in sun-glases and overalls looking every bit the old rural bluesman, and just proceeded to tear the roof off. Actually there was no roof, it was outdoors, but you get the picture. How a guy for San Jose (capital of Silicon Valley) could learn to play the blues like he was from another-town-another-era is beyind me. I guess I heard his playing as a more lyrical Stevie Ray Vaughn, or a more mercurial BB King. Either way, lovers of great guitar and great music will love his shows. The one I saw left the usually mild crowd howling for more. As for the album, it's very good, but it can't evoke the atmosphere of the live show itself. Very few albums ever do..."
