    Personnel: O.B. Buchana (vocals); John Ward (guitar, keyboards); Morris Williams (keyboards).
    As the title suggests, I Can't Stop Drinkin' is a little heavier than O.B. Buchana's earlier albums, closer to a modern reinterpretation of classic electric Chicago blues than the lightweight retro-soul of its immediate predecessor, Shake What You Got! Buchana isn't really a bluesman in terms of his singing voice, which is a smooth and soulful croon in the classic Stax Records style, but there's more grit to these nine songs (plus a superfluous remix of album opener "Stage in the Sky" tacked on the end) than has been Buchana's previous wont, a tougher and more guitar-oriented style. This is still primarily a soul album, however; at day's end, this is far closer to Robert Cray's Strong Persuader than, say, Howlin' Wolf. That said, songs like "I'm Ready to Get Nude" and "I'm Gonna Party Alone" (which, amusingly, are right next to each other in the album's middle, like some kind of oddball song suite) crackle with energy in a way Buchana's previous work never did. ~ Stewart Mason

  • Critic Reviews
    Living Blues (p.61) - "O.B. Buchana's voice is supple and soulful....[He] shows that the 'soul' in soul/blues can still resonate with inspiration and deep feeling."
