Though forever best known to casual fans as half of Mickey and Sylvia, whose 1957 single "Love Is Strange" was one of the decade's most peculiar and bewitching sides, McHouston "Mickey" Baker has spent decades on the bar and theatre circuit as one of the most original and distinctive guitarists in R&B. His enormous musical gifts are readily apparent on his 1994 release ROCK WITH A SOCK; these 28 tracks run an amazing stylistic gamut, from the Latin-flavored instrumental "Guitar Mambo" through the gospel-tinged "Oh Happy Day" to the smoking gutbucket solos that pepper bluesy tunes like "Old Devil Moon" and "You'd Better Heed My Warning." His vocals, as on the standard "Where Is My Honey" have lost none of their casual charm, either. ROCK WITH A SOCK is a rewarding R&B album.
