5.0 out of 5 stars It will move you. September 3, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album marks the extraordinary return of one of the great voices of the blues. In the cover notes and in every single song, you will understand why he "gave it all up" for the love of the blues. This album will lead you to great joy, move you to tears, and then back again. Mighty Sam has since produced three other great albums, but you just cannot miss this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best male blues singer of all time April 16, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Wow! What an amazingly powerful voice McClain has. Makes the current trend of blues teen upstarts and young guns sound like slightly slower versions of N'Sync, Britney Spears or Destiny's Child. If anyone listens to this cd and doubts that Mighty Sam has had some woes to overcome in his life, they probably also believe the earth is flat.
These are all exceptionally well-crafted, slower blues numbers with a significant gospel and soul influence, along with a touch of R&B to boot. More than most recent blues performers, McClain focuses on the vocals a bit more than the instruments. As a blues fan who started out listening to hard rock a few decades ago and who still prefers guitar-oriented music, I wasn't sure how well I would like this CD when I first purchased it, but even though the blues guitar work is a bit sparing, it is a very subtley satisifying compliment to the piano, horns and Sam's great singing. Don't be put off by the slightly gospelish and soulful sound either - this still comes across as a blues album first and foremost.
The highlight of this album is the title track. I first heard this album as a demo cd at a car stereo dealer and I liked Give It Up to Love so much I searched every record store in town until I found it. I have used this particular song to test several stereos and its highs, lows, great vocals and build up to a enlightening crescendo makes it a perfect test cd.
