CD Reviews

Minor soul-blues classic
Ed Brickell | 06/03/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This reissue of the 1969 classic is, for the most part, a modest soul-blues gem, with all of the rough edges intact and some strong originals by Covay (especially the 7-minute title track) to go along with a handful of solid cover versions. Unfortunately, the producer allowed someone to play something that sounds like a misguided attempt at blues flute on a few of the cuts. But at least now I know who Mick Jagger has been trying to imitate all these years."
BETTER THAN MINOR SOUL BLUES
JOHNPAUL CENZATO | SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES Australia | 09/17/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Rather than a minor soul/blues classic the Don Covay album also
embraces a rock ethos.
The reissue provides a good remastering of the sound that comes from a group which is not only grounded in blues but soul and rock.The are many highlights to this cd and it great to see it reissued.
Have a listen! You'll be surprised.JohnPaul"
