    Bland's first album for Malaco is a deliberately retro affair, and all the better for it. The veteran bluesman is in good voice throughout; he seems positively energized by the songs, in particular the commercially successful title tune, which has a classic '60s soul groove. Most of the material here does, but there's also some straight blues (the Junior Wells-derived "Straight For the Shoulder"), a nod to late-'70s disco ("Sweet Surrender") and an authoritative cover of Elvis Presley's "In the Ghetto."
