"Released in 1989, Midnight Drive blends the signature powerhouse sound of the famed "Big Daddy" Kinsey's three sons. The first release fromthem in a few years, the album blends a saturation of energy and skill. Some tracks are straight-out blues, while a few others, like "Can't Stop Thinking About You" have a special groove to them. I recently attended a local venue in which The Kinsey Report performed, and was totally blown away. This album was recommended to me by some of the band members themselves, and I have not regretted buying it one bit. Highly recommended!"

"I recently bought a box of albums from a yard sale, all in good condition which is a benefit in itself. And I was astounded to find a jewel among the stones. Midnight Drive by the Kinsey Report is my first introduction to this group and a very solid introduction it has been. I am not very involved in the "Chicago Blues" scene but know enough about music to know it exists and know what Alligator Records is. This is a very fine effort by the group with some exceptionally high points. I truly enjoyed many of the cuts on this album but personally the ones that stand out are varied on their own within the normal confines of accepted blues guidelines. "Rivers Invitation" is a very good acoustical blues song. "Midnight Drive" has a popular radio oriented type of rhythm and message. "Hit Woman" is a little harder but still could be on the play list of a radio station and "Can't Stop Thinking About You" is an exceptional slow blues piece that really hit home with me but probably would not show up on any radio station in my area. Overall I believe this is a good introduction to the group and am looking forward to finding more from them. I can't compare this to other efforts from the group as this is the first I have come across. It surely will not be my last and I don't think you would go wrong to have this as your introduction also."
A very patchy album

"The album,recorded in 1989, was never one of their very best, but with the passing of time it hasn't aged well.Much of the material that they were writing was labored and relied heavily on the guitar interplay between Donald Kinsey and Ron Prince. The best self written tracks here are "Midnight Drive", "Get outta here" and "Big Time". The latter has Stephen Dawson on keyboards which adds an interesting texture to the track. He also appears on "Rivers invitation" written by Percy Mayfield the tour-de-force of this album.Not the first Kinsey report album to buy!"
