Product Description:

Personnel: Johnny Adams (vocals); Walter "Wolfman" Washington (guitar); Bill "Foots" Samuel (alto, tenor & baritone saxophones); Alvin "Red" Tyler (tenor saxophone); Terry Tullos (trumpet); Craig Wroten (piano, organ); Darrel Frances, Sr. (bass); Wilbert "Stix" Arnold (drums); George "Geeje" Jackson, Jr. (congas, percussion).
Recorded at Ultrasonic Studios, New Orleans, Louisiana in December 1983. Includes liner notes by Jeff Hannusch (a.k.a. Almost Slim).
"Hell, I think I could sing bluegrass if I had to," soul singer non-pareil Adams asserts in the liner notes to his Rounder Records debut. He doesn't try to here, of course; the album is mostly devoted to urbane blues out of the school of Charles Brown or Percy Mayfield (in fact, he does a meltingly lovely version of Mayfield's "We Don't See Eye to Eye"). But Adams does, quite convincingly, turn himself into a jazz singer at one point, scatting like a New Orleans version of Ella Fitzgerald on "Why Do I?" Elsewhere, Adams echoes his early hits on Doc Pomus's old-school R&B number "From the Heart," goes gospel on the passionate "Scarred Knees," and gets extremely funky with Sam Cooke's unjustly obscure "Laughin' and Clownin'."
