The music is a modern approach to the electric blues. From the opening “I’m Having A Ball” with its harmonica, piano, and guitar solos, to the slow blues of “Hard To Get Along With You,” to the relaxed “Dear John,” it is a nice ride through Sugar Ray’s upbeat musical approach.
A couple of the songs add some unique twists. “Too Many Rules and Regulations” is part talking blues which is a nice change of pace. Sugar Ray’s introductory use of a Native American flute on “Dancing Bear” was both beautiful and innovative.
Sugar Ray & The Bluetones have produced another exceptional blues album. Evening is a worthwhile way for any blues fan to spend an hour or so.
