There may not be a finer all-around blues artist in the U.S. than Joe Louis Walker, whose third album for the Verve label impresses from start to close. Emotionally connected with gospel and soul as well as blues, he injects his confident singing and sophisticated, lyrical guitar-playing into an appealing program of eight originals and a song apiece from R&B great Ike Turner ("You've Got to Lose"), world-famous R&B scribe Dan Penn (with songwriting help from fellow Nashville resident Gary Nicholson on the title cut), and his dependable Bosstalkers band ("Second Street"). For certain, Walker's individual way with a song is memorable, inviting return listens. Special guests this time around include bass great Steve Cropper, who helped Walker produce the record; the ever-busy Memphis Horns; and, not least, the church singers The Spiritual Corinthians. --Frank-John Hadley

"Some musos have got it all (...) and WALKER is one of them. Great voice, great guitar playing with phrasing and tone that makes it recognisably his. A wonderful injection of soul makes this a pure pleasure to listen to. Some great and original lyrics ( not often found on a blues CD ) round out a superb BLUES CD that should be in any serious blues fans collection. WHY IS THIS MAN NOT A HOUSEHOLD NAME?????
WALKER would put just about all the better known blues artists to shame."
