    Back Porch Blues' ex-lead singer solos with double the pieces she had with Back Porch Blues -- six musicians, including a washtub bass. As if she needed it. Sheila Wilcoxson's earthy, bluesy delivery, if converted to ultra sounds, could clean cobwebs from dusty attics. Bill Rhoades works out on harp throughout, giving the tracks a distinct flavoring. Many cuts (i.e., "Keep Your Eyes Open" and "Revival Day") are more '20s/'30s/'40s race music than the more traditional Delta blues she sang with Back Porch Blues. And the rolling "Biscuit Roller" is so sweet it'll make you want to bake a batch and sop 'em in maple syrup. If the intent was to record something different, then mission accomplished. You'll have to check the credits to make sure you didn't slip on something by Lucille Bogan, Clara Smith, Georgia White, or Lil Johnson, though. ~ Andrew Hamilton
