    A powerful blues guitarist and an excellent vocalist, Tinsley Ellis dominates his fourth Alligator CD as a leader. His backup band (guitarist Oliver Wood, bassist James Ferguson, drummer Stuart Gibson and occasional organist/pianist Stuart Grimes) does a fine job of inspiring the leader, while slide guitarist Derek Trucks and Albey Scholl on harmonica make notable guest appearances. While Ellis often plays quite passionately and hints at rock, he also performs an occasional quieter piece that shows his more traditional and introspective side. There is plenty of spirit on this generally rousing set. ~ Scott Yanow

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (10/6/94) - 3.5 Stars - Good - "...Ellis' vocals have never seemed smokier. But it's on guitar that his eloquence dazzles..."
    Living Blues (1-2/95, p.102) - "...This set documents the continuing development of his unabashedly macho musical persona....a far better singer than most guitar stars..."
