This 1991 recording from the Blues Band is probably my favourite of their albums, and the most unique in style throughout their catalogue.

The band were starting to move away a little from the raw blues sound of five guys on a stage. Introducing more sophisticated production techniques and a wider palette of instrumentation gave them a richer, fuller sound with which to work. This can be the death of some bands, but Jones, Kelly and the rest of the guys managed to create a masterful album which retains the essential elements of their music, but adds that little bit more.

Jones in particular is on fine form, especially in the title track. With his distinctive vocals and top class harmonica work he sets a high standard for the rest of the gang to live up to, and they manage to keep up pretty well. With a riper sound, verging on soul at times, mixed with some straight blues numbers (Duisburg blues especially) and interesting songwriting that lets the band's inherent good natured and generous personalities shine through this is the most interesting and accomplished of their works. ---Victor, amazon.com
