Raw, soulful '50s R&B
Joe Sixpack -- | Middle America | 09/01/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Singer-guitarist Tarheel Slim and his partner Little Annie were cut from much the same mould as Ike and Tina Turner -- a blazing guitarist and powerful singer, Tarheel Slim was clearly the driving force behind the duo, while Little Ann often rose to the fore in their duets with her piercing, slightly eerie voice. Slim's voice is remarkable as well, and after a while you may wish they'd recorded more solo tunes -- although they both sound great, their duets don't always mesh as well as you'd want. The best tracks on this collection are electrifying, although there is a great deal of variability from track to track. For one thing, they seem to have chased several popular styles -- there's an "Unchained Melody" soundalike, a few Dinah Washington-style ballads - and these attempts to fit the sound a la mode don't always work as well as the spine-tingling blues that was really the pair's forte. But that blues stuff is pretty awesome: if you like sizzling old-school electric blues, you'll want to check this one out! (DJ Joe Sixpack, Slipcue Music Guide)"
