CD Reviews

A very uneven album
Dr.D.Treharne | Exeter, Devon, United Kingdom | 04/03/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I normally like Tinsley Ellis' albums, but this one is the exception. It doesn't really hold together with any cohesion, and was evidently the result of (at least)two different sessions. The ones with the basic band of Bob McNeely (guitars) Scott Koziol(bass and Tad Parker (drums)[tracks 1,2,6,9 and 10] are tight and show off Ellis' guitar playing. I'd guess that this was his road band at the time; it certainly sounds like it. Producer Tom Dowd evidently wanted more tracks and variation, so the other tracks have a different band ( Duck Dunn on bass) with the augmentation of Kevin McKendree (keyboards) on some tracks.Best track from this session is Magic Sam's "Look what you done", but on the album as a whole pick are "Diggin'my own grave" and "One sunny day". If you're new to Tinsley Ellis buy another album first."

"As an Atlanta native I've had the pleasure to see Tinsley play live many times over the years, and even ran across him before Christmas at a guitar center store a few years ago ( he was shopping for a keyboard for his kid ). I love his tone on this recording, and his playing has been influential on my own style. The engineering is also amazingly good. You can feel the midrange " thump " of the Marshall 412 and his highs really sing too. Maybe I'm partial since Tinsley is a Hometown Favorite but I really recomend this CD to anyone who appreciates solid electric blues with a rock edge. Best track : " If thats how he loves you ".
