"Sonny Rhodes made a string of solid recordings at King Snake Studios in Florida and `Good Day to Play the Blues' was the final before the death of producer/bass player Bob Greenlee. Like his other Greenlee produced sets this one is a varied set with plenty of lap steel and lead guitar playing from Rhodes. There are a few weak song selections but there are some terrific ones as well. "She's Not Happy Unless She's Sad" is a smoldering slow blues with terrific lap steel playing, while "I Wanna Get Your Boogie" is a party-anthem style rocker. "Honey-Do Woman" and "Good Man, Good Woman" are basic shuffles with nice lap steel playing and singing. The title track is a thank you to all of the people who helped him out when he and his band had a van accident.
Sonny Rhodes is one of the more versatile bluesmen playing today and so his album's are always a delight and something to look forward to. While this cd is not as solid as his previous ones 'Blue Diamond' or 'Born to be Blue', it is still a fine showcase for this very talented and entertaining bluesman."
