Synopsis

Amazon.com
Here Lucky goes to Memphis. Several years into a solo career, the former blues whiz kid plays good keyboards and guitar, and sings stirringly on originals and covers from all over the black music map (Stevie Wonder, Jimi Hendrix, Les McCann & Eddie Harris, blues piano master Roosevelt Sykes, etc.) His modern soul-cum-blues is hot, sweaty, and aggressive, and he gets the job done in busy arrangements shared with the Memphis Horns, honey-throated back-up singers, and muscular hired guns like bassist Willie Weeks and drummer Crusher Green. Peterson had the good sense to collaborate with New Yorker Jim Payne when writing five songs for the album, including the killer slow blues instrumental that doubles as the album title. --Frank-John Hadley

One of my fave rocking blues albums of all time. The horns over the top give music so much energy...

He gets better with every album

"This is a top-notch collection. Lucky Peterson shows his true-blue roots by not being afraid of doing covers of the songs that have helped form his style. I distrubed my neighbors yelling for joy when the title track came on."

"From the first cut of this sensational CD, Lucky brings his own brand of soulful bluesy funk. I especially appreciated his take on Stevie Wonder's "You Haven't Done Nothin'" and I loved...loved his take on Jim Hendrix's "Up from the Skies" and Gene Daniels' "Compared to What". This CD had me bopping in my seat. How could anyone sit still through "I'm Talking to You" or "Pouring Money on a Drowning Love Affair"? I recommend this CD to anyone who loves music you can move to."
