    The Atlanta blues guitarist Tinsley Ellis has gained an outstanding reputation as a fiery and authoritative musician since his first record release in the early 1980s. On this self-produced 2007 collection, his fluid playing contains influences from both the blues and rock music, with the opening track "Say Too Much" incorporating Albert King-like phrases over a four-square R&B backing, and "Tell the Truth" displaying a Southern rock sensibility. The folk-blues of "Shadow of Doubt" gives Ellis the chance to show that he's just as compelling a performer on downbeat, acoustic material as on the swaggering, electric urban blues of "I Take What I Want," and the startling guitar pyrotechnics of "Bringin' Home the Bacon" stake his claim to being one of the early 21st century's most electrifying players.

  • Critic Reviews
    Dirty Linen (p.76) - "Ellis' voice has become far more expressive and soulful....This is arguably his best studio effort yet."
    Living Blues (p.39) - "Ellis shines on several dramatic ballads with lyrics matching the pain expressed by emotion-laden guitar solos. 'Freeway Soul' is one of his best ballads ever."
