"Wiggle Outta This" features more of the gutsy harmonica playing and singing that have made Curtis Salgado a mainstay in the blues scene. Salgado's fourth solo album marks his debut for Shanachie Records, and includes ballads like "Why I Don't Care," the sexy, soulful "Cookie Dough" and "Sweet Jesus Buddha the Doctor." ~ Heather Phares
