Okay, the key things you need to know:
1. This is the BEST Sonny Landreth
album so far (considering the beauts hes recorded previously, thats saying a
2. While his friends (Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Robben Ford,
Vince Gill, Dr. John, Jimmy Buffett, Nadirah Shakoor, Sam Broussard, and Steve
Conn--hey, theyre also all Grammy nominees and/or winners, too!) add plenty of
their own fragrant spices to the gumbo, the core flavor is Landreth: boiling
blues rock, crisp zydeco riffs, meaty funk, and simmering, sinuous rills.
Every song on the menu is exciting in its own way: there are nuances of country

for seconds after the first taste!
