This is a well produced disc with a sharp rhythm section accented by horns on almost every track and sweet backup vocals from the ladies that contrast nicely with Blues Boy's gravelly voice. His vocals are one of the highlights of the album, he often sounds remarkably like B.B. King.
The lyrics are on the humorous side, and the opening track "I'm gonna marry my mother-in-law" is quite racy.
I enjoyed the variety of styles included, ranging from blues to funk to R&B. All are well executed. My favorite track is "I've been shacking" which has a fat groove, lots of energy and is catchy as hell.
