"you know, I met Dan in 1996. I had heard about him all of my life. See, his grandma and my grandma were sisters. I called him out of the blue when I was traveling through Nashville. I heard he was a great musician, but I was in shock to find out how truly good he is. He gave me the CD, "Do right Man" and I relate to this so much. I sing along with him and daydream about singing the blues myself. I have lived the life of the blues and still am. He is not only a great musician, but a great man as he made me feel right at home. I am going to get back in touch with him. If you ever get the chance to meet him you will feel as if you knew him all your life. Once again, hats off to my famous cousin."
The songs are an obvious '5' stars, but there's more..

"All one needs to do is look at the song titles to know how important Dan Penn's contribution to 'soul' music is, but his voice is great, too. I remember an Alex Chilton,(BoxTops' singer), interview where he mentioned his producer showing him how to sing 'The Letter', and that all he did was imitate it,(and not as well, according to Chilton himself). That producer was Penn...After listening to 'Do Right Man', I'm positive that Eric Clapton must have heard some old Dan Penn Demos when forming his own vocal style. I'm not a fan of 'singer-songwriter' recordings in general, but that's not an issue here; this is flat-out a great cd."
