One great soul guitar album!!!
John Davis | Montreal | 05/14/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Finally available domestically (previously only as a $45 japanese import)! A fantastic album of instrumental music from Aretha Franklin's guitarist and Atlantic studio musician, Cornell Dupree. Musicians include Chuck Rainey on bass, Bernard Purdie on drums, and David "Fathead" Newman on sax. The version of Ray Charles "What Would I do Without You?" is worth the price of this disc alone. Sometimes funky, sometimes bluesy but always played with heaps of soul. Unbelievably good."
The master of soul funk guitar
John Pierce | washington, d.c. | 08/20/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Stuff

For pure soulful throwdown, it doesn't get much more old school funky than this. With a fluid, sinewy attack, Cornell Dupree puts his signature on all of these tunes, even with a stellar and remarkable bunch of studio masters. For pure soul guitar heaven, check out the interplay with Eric Gale on any of the Stuff records. They don't make 'em like that anymore, but they sure sample 'em. Great "stuff"."
A Classic from a great and unique guitarist.
Earle G | Nashville, TN | 12/16/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After many years this early '70s classic LP is finally released on CD
first in Japan and now in the US. Cornell is an original with his playing
style be it Blues, R&B, Soul or funky Jazz. His many years with King
Curtis and the Kingpins had ended with King's death and this was his
first solo LP recorded after. Cornell had just been recovering from an
auto accident but is in great form here.

Some other playing of his from this era with King Curtis worth a listen
is "Honkey Tonk" and "Alexanders Ragtime Band" on King's "Everybody's
Talkin" LP and "Blues at Montreux" with King Curtis and Champion Jack
Dupree.
