Curtis Salgado strives to persevere as the creator of heartfelt music that brooks no concession to commercialism or artifice of any sort. Salgado's voice is strong, limber, direct, carrying a cool sense of relaxation. His sung phrases move right along with the pulse of the mixed blues-funk-soul-rock played by his expert band (plus a couple of guests like guitarists Duke Robillard and Terry Robb) until finding blessed release by soaring off in melodic arches. A fine songwriter with a penchant for insightful lyrics, Salgado plumbs a number of complex and arresting moods, from the anguished contentment of "Sorry Don't Mean Nothin'" to the inner ache that compels the song's protagonist to "Sing My Song." And Salgado puts his stamp on three little-known gems carefully chosen from the blues or soul-blues archives: J.B. Lenoir's "I Feel So Good," Al "TNT" Braggs's "That's All a Part of Lovin' You," and O.V. Wright's "I Want Everyone to Know." Few albums released in the late 1990s are as smart and enjoyable as this one. Don't miss it. --Frank-John Hadley

"This CD is stunning in every way. Comparisons on some of the mid - tempo songs remind me of Stevie Ray Vaughan ( "I feel so good" and Robben Ford (Beneath the Silver Moon). His vocals very much remind me of Australian Slide Blues guitarist Dave Hole, but WITHOUT that horrible nasal irrittation delivery Dave delivers, and Curtis' vocal variation is another plus. On "Sing my Song" you are reminded of the legendary Malford Milligan for the Soulful delivery. The 1st 2 songs I heard of Curtis Salgado were the title track and the creme de la creme "Cookie Dough". You cannot help but to nod your head with a smile on your face during the latter song. The guy is so COOL. I have downloaded a few Curtis songs and only own "More than you can chew" CD, but how the hell could he better this CD? Unlike a previous reviewer, I dont consider "Thats all a part of loving you " as a weak song. It is basic 12 bar Blues, but I could imagine a great time being evident at a party or such like and everyone joining in on the chorus. If there was to be a weak song?!, I would choose "Sorry dont mean nothing". My only criticism is the length of the CD at 40 min. Technology asks for more than that. Otherwise, I highly recommend this CD to anyone. It will not disappoint"

"This is one of my top 3 cd's, definitely. Though it's not pure blues (it's rather a blues/soul/rock mixture of some kind), it's got a great feeling put into it, which is what we want the blues to be, right? There are one of two songs not up to the standard set by the others (particularly That's All A Part Of Lovin You and Beneath The Silver Moon), but the other songs are so good that you don't really care about these. The title song, I Feel So Good (great harmonica piece), Why Don't I Care, Cookie Dough (with Duke Robillard as guest musician) are incredible songs. After hearing them you'd want only to sit back and listen and enjoy. The best of all, however, is Sorry Don't Mean Nuthin'. It's definitaely my favorite song - not only because of the great soulful music, but because of the lyrics. If you know what I mean you know what I mean:) Salgado has felt the blues. He may not play it pure, but he FEELS it! Buy this CD before anything else, you won't be sorry, I promise!"
