Editors’ Notes

Sixteen albums and five Grammys deep into his career, blues torchbearer Robert Cray no longer has anything to prove to anyone. So it’s appropriate and refreshing that for 2012’s Nothin’ but Love, he turns away from universal but timeworn blues tropes to address more personal matters. For Nothin’ but Love, Cray and his road-tested touring band work through nine original songs about family life and growing older, abandoned homes and fading relationships. This is a brooding, not to say downcast, set of songs heavy on introspection and light on flashy instrumental heroics. That’s not to say that Cray’s playing is anything less than excellent. Throughout Nothin’ but Love he maintains his trademark tone—a fleet-footed trebly jangle—over a series of lively solos and choogling riffs that are the equal of his finest. Among Nothin’ but Love’s reflective original songs is one telling cover: a soulful take on Bobby Parker’s atmospheric 1958 lament “Blues Get off of My Shoulder", which effectively sets the tone for this strikingly understated but reliably excellent set.

after watching him on Breakfast show gotta grab this

love it!

Tin-eared critics have frequently damned him as a yuppie blues wannabe whose slickly soulful offerings bear scant resemblance to the real down-home item. In reality, Robert Cray is one of a precious few young blues-based artists with the talent and vision to successfully usher the idiom into the 21st century without resorting either to slavish imitation or simply playing rock while passing it off as blues. Just as importantly, his immensely popular records helped immeasurably in jump-starting the...
