"I've read some pretty narrow minded reviews of Robben Ford's official debut LP (this has been reissued on CD finally). Don't be fooled by the haters. GET THIS CD IF YOU LIKE ROBBEN FORD PERIOD!!! Not owning "The Inside Story" is like calling yourself a Van Halen fan and not owning Van Halen I & II!
Ever since Siskel & Ebert, everyone thinks they are a critic. In 1979, all records sounded like this (or tried to). Sure there are elements that scream 80s like the Dyno-My-Piano Rhodes played by Russ Ferrante on this record, but nothing makes it sound dated. Any review that you read which suggests this LP sounds dated is bull. Any such remark would be overly critical and useless because it doesn't take into account what technology was available at the time. The production by the great Steve Cropper is tasteful and very palatable. So what is wrong with that?
The best compositions on this CD are "Magic Sam," "Far Away," "Tee Time For Eric," and "There's No One Else." Robben's playing is very soulful and unexpected. This is a very good CD that won Robben Ford legions of fans world wide.
