Album Review

Otis Clay is on record as saying that when Tad Robinson dies he'll be "going to soul heaven," and he's not kidding. Robinson has one of the richest and most powerful voices in soul and blues music, and his latest album is not only a triumph of pure singing, but of old-school arranging and song choice as well. The first thing you notice, of course, is Robinson's rich, chesty, rough-but-sweet voice, an instrument that he can use virtuosically but chooses to wield with restraint. The second thing you notice is the horn charts — on tracks like the album-opening "Long Way Home" and the album-closing "Back for More," the horns deepen and expand the songs' sound, laying a rich and multicolored carpet for Robinson's voice. The songs, most of them modern originals, are almost all excellent as well (the slightly overwrought "He's Movin' In (To Her Life)" and the slightly preachy "When You're Ready" being the only minor exceptions). Robinson isn't afraid to acknowledge his influences; you'll hear a strong hint of Sam Cooke's melodic style in his delivery on the Johnnie Taylor classic "Ain't That Lovin' You (For More Reasons Than One)," and you'll hear touches of Otis Redding here and there as well. But his influences are all well digested and Robinson's sound, traditional as it is, long ago became fully his own. Highly recommended.

Customer Reviews

Great new blues

Happened to hear him on Bob and Tom show this morning and find him and his band a great blues/rock act along the lines of Jonny Lang and such. Nice to see a band that did NOT come from the american idol (no caps on purpose) scene which does to music what White Castle does to your toilet the next day ! Get some blues with Tad and company and support bands that work there way to the top from hard work and stay around year after year unlike "pop" rock bands!

Killer Soul/Blues

This is what music's supposed to sound like. Front to back, this album stands as one of the recent soul blues gems. Tad's in excellent voice with a band (Alex Schultz, Kevin Anker, Steve Gomes, and Robb Stupka) that lays it down and picks you up. Someone needs to turn this guy into a star, because he has a voice from heaven above.

JJ

Great voice, great musicians. No blues library is complete without it.

Biography

Born: June 24, 1956 in New York, NY

Genre: Blues

Years Active: '90s

Tad Robinson would have fit in snugly with the blue-eyed soul singers of the 1960s. His vocals virtually reeking of soul, he's capable of delving into a straight-ahead Little Walter shuffle or delivering a vintage O.V. Wright R&B ballad. Add his songwriting...
