Dance music for the blues connoisseur
mumer | 11/04/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"lets get this straight. This is not a standard blues disc, so don't judge it as one. The CD is made for those who enjoy upbeat electronic music, and it just happens that it's blues orientated. I'm a blues fan, and this fusion of musical genres has allowed me for the first time to enjoy semi-organic, quality dance music. Let the blues fans have a chance to dance true in the 90's. Well done Fat Possum and R.L Turn it up!!"
Not your grandpappy's blues

"This record brims with attitude. I had not heard R.L. before, but the first time through, I was sold big time. The record features an odd marriage of blues and studio gadgetry, but it mostly works. It's cool to hear a departure from straight ahead blues, and this record is leading me to explore the genre as I haven't done before. I followed up this purchase with Junior Kimbrough's "All Night Long", also on Fat Possum, which is amazing - it takes me deep, deep into Mississippi. If you like raw, unadorned blues, R.L.'s live version of "Come on in" is for you. The lead-in is great and the song itself is eerie and beautiful; this is the real deal. Much of the rest of the record demands that the volume be turned up; this ain't music to listen to on the couch."
An acquired taste, but try it

"This album is kind of like wasabi: it takes some getting used to but if you do, you have a friend for life. You're in for a big surprise if you're expecting traditional blues from this old bluesman. This is techno remix blues, which obviously won't please some, but he pulls it off. Best-known and probably the best tune is "It's Bad You Know", played on WXRT in Chicago, who turned me on to the album. Most of the cuts are musical loops, not all of which work, but overall pretty solid and recommended for anyone wanting something different. Die-hard blues purists need not apply."
