Album Review

Oliver Morgan's raspy sandpaper growl is one of those voices you never forget, exuding soul in giant capital letters. He was around with Otis Redding, Joe Tex, Fats Domino and other wonderful Southern soul singers, and he pays a kind tribute to many of those he graced the stage with. Oliver Morgan has you up and dancing, bobbing your head, body moving to the groove from the first notes; he puts his heart and soul into not only every song, not only every word, but every little sound that comes from him. There isn't a weak song on this disc. Each one gives Oliver a chance to show off his chops, and his funky, rocking band has room too. Only one complaint — the running time is a scant 33:21. But if you want to hear some of the true, funky rhythm & blues that is in short supply now, dash out and get this one.

So glad it's on iTunes.
