“A good dose of rhythm, funky & joyful dancing blues is what you will find in this excellent funny new work of singer, guitar player, and composer Lightnin' Rod. Thirteen original songs filled with an uncontrollable force that will catch listeners who look for good songs and varied rhythms filled with interesting vocal and horn arrangements by a bunch of musicians who leave their knowledge and distinctive mark in a fully satisfactory way. Some people say that his music is as if Bob Seger & Eric Clapton meet in Muddy Waters' house, but this is not totally true, because Rod carries blues and rock deep in his heart & his style is always influenced by soul, Motown & gospel music. GREAT.”
