Holy Crap! This guy rocks, rolls, growls, howls, moans & groans sometimes soulful, othertimes punchy, but always catchy lyrics over tight, funky Cooder slide-guitar or organ or other top-notch grooves (ever heard ass-kickin trombone?) laid down by an awesome backing band. This is 5-STAR material inside & out, so I'm stumped why its sitting here with a pitiful 3 stars!!! Don't be fooled, just pick this one up if you have any interest in a tight mix of rockin, funky or soulful tunes, but don't bother asking for mine... This one is a lifelong keeper

"Until five years ago, I wasn't much of a Blues fan, but after listening to Terry Evans' album, 'Blues for Thought,' I become a fan of him and Blues. That album caused me to start looking for anything with Terry Evans. 'Puttin' It Down' was the second album I purchased and found it to be as enjoyable as 'Blues for Thought.' In the car, I sing along and if at home, I start moving/dancing, while Terry Evans sings. Now I own 'Come to the River' and am waiting for ... to send me 'Mississippi Magic.' I think all of his music just makes you happy."
Plenty of Good Stuff Here!

"This CD was recorded in July 1995 in Hollywood California and is somewhat unique today in that it is a pure analog recording. All tracks, with the possible exception of 3, were recorded direct to two track for that live club feeling. All tracks feature Ry Cooder on guitar and most feature Jim Keltner on drums.The disc itself has a laidback soulful feel which seems typical for slide master Ry Cooder. The standout tracks are J.B. Lenoir's "Down In Mississippi" and Terry's own "Blues No More" both slow, smooth, soulful and performed with a lot of feeling. On the downside, the CD would get along just fine without "Money In Your Pocket" which sounds an awful lot like the old "Put The Lime In The Coconut". Over all, with the exception of "Money", this is a fine CD with a lot to offer the listener."
