Of course there has to be a song about an enticing, dangerous woman, and that brings us to "Master of the Craft," which features that smoking harmonica and masterful slide guitar again. This temptress tale is followed by the fine, rolling eight-bar blues of "Find Yourself a Fool," which sounds a lot like Marshall Tucker in their prime, or Elvin Bishop or Tinsley Ellis, not bad company to be in.
My favorite song on the CD, though, leaves the traditional themes behind and sets itself firmly in modern reality, as it points out the advantages of a "Man With a Mini-Van." I love the humor and the originality. "I can take 'em to the grocery, I can take 'em to the mall; if they got a bunch of kids, hell, I can take 'em all...I'm a man, a man with a mini-van."
Closing out the set is "Don't Be Mean to Me, Baby," with a funkier, modern blues sound.
Overall, this is a very enjoyable offering from an artist who deserves a wider audience. Get this CD for those times when you just want to relax and listen to a real singer/songwriter show what he and his band can do.
