Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
On this 1993 album produced by John Porter, Taj Mahal applies his revivalist instincts and remarkably pliable voice to the classic rhythm & blues styles of the 1940s through the '60s. The program ranges from T-Bone Walker ("Hard Way") and Howlin' Wolf ("Sitting on Top of the World") to Fats Domino ("I'm Ready"), Otis Redding ("That's How Strong My Love Is"), and the Four Tops ("I Can't Help Myself"). Etta James sings a duet on "Mockingbird," while guitarist Johnny Lee Schell, bassist Bob Glaub, keyboardist Bill Payne, and drummer Richie Hayward provide tight and supple studio backing. --Rick Mitchell

"Taj Mahal gives us the blues through the years and makes it sound timeless. Every song is great, but my personal favorite is "Down Home Girl" Just makes me want eat a mess of soul food! This album is soul food!"

"This CD is fabulous - It has a Taj Mahal's style of the blues written all over it- I especially love the remake of "Sugar Pie Honey Bun". Taj's style gets you moving and feeling the blues - but in a happy WAY! I find listening to this CD a motivational moving thing! I definitely recommend this CD for your blues collection!"
Taj is the best
