"I was turned on to this CD (and the singer) many years ago, when this CD first came out, and it's one of those CD's that start to finish is wonderful. It stayed with me for years, and I've always passed along the CD title to friends and told them to find it and keep it. It's warm, soulful, and full of discovery and fun. It made me smile, ponder and to this day brings back memories of where I was when I heard it. Definetly one of the CD's that will forever be a keeper and a favorite."

"This album is different from his first, self-titled, album, which was more traditional sounding piano blues. He still has his raspy voice and piano based songs, but this album has a bit of a more "modern sound", with elements of jazz, country, and rockabilly in the songs.
Because it's so different from the first album, it took a while for it to grow on me, but it eventually did. There are plenty of good songs with catchy melodies and reasonably interesting lyrics about hanging around in bars."
