“A well-rounded exploration of every shade of blues Ford does so well: Chicago-style (“When I Leave Here”), jump blues (“The Miller’s Son”), jazz-blues balladry (“Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood”), and Texas shuffle (“Tired of Talkin'”). Ford’s buttery lines and burnished tone (and his boyish voice) are captured in all their glory by producer Danny Kortchmar. Solidly anchored by bassist Roscoe Beck and drummer Tom Brechtlein, Ford solos liberally, taking the fast funk of “Think Twice” over the top with a burning series of rapid-fire runs and well-tooled turnarounds. Slowing down for a languid version of Willie Dixon’s “I Just Want to Make Love to You,” Ford plays it raw and soulful, recalling B.B. King. He then turns up the pace on “Strong Will to Live,” closing out the album with a signature solo full of fire and drama.” Amazon review by James Rotondi.
Billboard Top Blues Album, peak #2.
