    Known primarily as an R&B singer, the late Johnny Adams possessed a deep, emotive voice that was also well suited to more traditional blues. This 2005 Rounder collection presents 12 blues-tinged tracks culled from Adams's 1980s and '90s albums for the label. In addition to being backed by top-notch session players, Adams is joined on a few tunes by fellow New Orleans native Dr. John, who contributes his typically slinky piano lines.
