Personnel: Kenny Neal (vocals, guitar, harmonica, bass guitar).
Louisiana bluesman Kenny Neal has been purveying his blend of blues, swamp, and soul since the mid-1980s, but LET LIFE FLOW is his first album for the Blind Pig label. It finds the singer/guitarist delivering both updates of classic R&B nuggets like "Since I Met You, Baby" and turning out his own infectious, soul-flavored blues tunes, inflected with everything from Jimmy Reed-like shuffle grooves ("Starlight Diamond") to greasy funk rhythms ("Another Man's Cologne").
