"Sonny Rhodes is another one of those extremely talented blues artists who remains underappreciated. He is a fabulous guitarist (both on the lap steel and regular guitar), has a terrific voice, and is also a very fine songwriter. This CD is a reissue of a self produced album he made in 1985 for his own Rhodesway label. That original album disappeared quickly, but thanks to Evidence, it is now easily available. Rhodes all around talent is shown throughout. Though there are only three originals ("East Oakland Stomp" is an instrumental), "Cigarette Blues" and "House Without Love" are very well written and showcase his terrific songwriting. There are a few overdone songs ("The Things that I Used to do", "It Hurts me too") but Rhodes puts his trademark stamp on each of them making them more enjoyable than the average version.
Since this is a straight reissue of an LP, it is only a short 36:22, so it kinda leaves you wanting more. But there are a few other Rhodes cd's available to enjoy (though many are out-of-print) so you will not be left without anything else to listen to by this master of Texas blues."
