When I first heard 'I'll take her' at soulmanmusic.com, I knew this record was gonna make me homesick(much love to Mississippi). I was not wrong. Folks from the burbs and the hood may be put off by this simple, down-to-earth, devoid of hip-hop hype, from the heart effort presented by C.R. From beginning to end, he presents a working class soulfullness that fills a void left by unsung soul legends like Tyrone Davis, Johnnie Taylor, and of course, Bobby Womack. He's not as vocally spectacular as Joe or Brian McKnight, but the music complements his voice(with its deliberately Southern accented phrasing) to its fullest effect. Its a shame that records like this largely go unnoticed by people who claim to be fans of Soul/R&B, but I'm glad I noticed it! So if you like your Soul with a southern-fried with a southern vibe, give this a listen. Fav tunes: 1. I'll take her, 2. Trust me so much, 4. Never knew love, 9. Close my eyes, 12. Country Boy

THIS BROTHA HAS SO MUCH TALENT. FIRST, I BOUGHT HIS SECOND ALBUM, 2:35 P.M (I LOVE THAT ALBUM). THEN, I WENT TO THIS SITE TO WRITE A REVIEW AND DISCOVERED THAT HE RELEASED AN ALBUM BEFORE THAT ONE. ONCE I LISTENED TO THIS ALBUM, I FELL IN LOVE WITH IT TOO. MY FAVORITE SONGS ARE "HALF THE TIME," "TRUE LOVE," "VIBE," "DISRESPECTFUL GHETTO," "TRUST ME SO MUCH," "LOVIN YOU," "CLOSE MY EYES" ...BASICALLY, I NAMED THE WHOLE ALBUM SO, ITS A MUST HAVE FOR SOMEONE WHO LOVES SOULFUL MUSIC. I LIKE ALL OF THE SONGS ALOT BUT THOSE ARE THE ONES THAT REALLY GOT MY ATTENTION WHEN I FIRST HEARD THEM. I PLAYED THIS CD FOR A FEW PEOPLE AND THEY REALLY LIKED IT TOO.

When I first heard his song titled "Vibe", I loved it!! The only reason I know of Calvin Richardson is because he was being interviewed on a television program and he sung one of his songs. I think his music is a mixture of jazz and blues, but it is a fresh style which is unique. That is when I purchased his album titled "Country Boy". I played his album for my friend and she loved it also. I just wish they would play his album on the radio so that he could get exposure. He is very talented and should go far. It is refreshing to have a different style and different type of flavor!!

I am a big fan of C. Richardson. Over the past couple of years I have been really getting into his music. He has a new c.d. out but it will not be on the market until the end of Sept. I decided to check out some music I had not heard by him. Country Boy, done in 1999 was very good I am glad I made the choice to purchase this selection.....I am very pleased.

This takes me back to when real music was on the radio!! This brother can flat out sing! Why do people sleep on real singing and keep buying the "status quo" artists of the moment, from what they hear on the radio? The lack of radio play has hindered this brothers career. Hit up his next CD when it comes out... it will be a must have!!

This was a gamble purchase, and like others, it was right on time and target! Some of these song have that country twang, but, all in all, it is still total R&B, from beginning to end! He did the damage here! I don't know where he hails from, but this blend works on all fronts, and I'm glad that I bought it and spinning it around again. THANKS CALVIN!!!
