4.0 out of 5 stars Here's to the next 40 years... April 1, 2014
Format:Audio CD
This album marks 40 years in the business for Robert Cray (and long-term bass player/song writer Richard Cousins) and highlights Robert's soul/R&B side with covers of songs by Otis Redding, Lou Rawls and Bobby `Blue' Bland. This is good news for me because I've always favoured Robert's soul output rather than his straight blues. As well as Cousins the band features returning keyboard player Dover Weinberg as well as drummer Les Falconer, who joins Robert on vocals for the fabulous version of Redding's "Nobody's Fault but Mine" - with its great brass lines. Robert does a really good laid-back reading of Rawls' "Your Good Thing (Is About to End)" and "Deep in My Soul" is transformed from Bland's impassioned southern soul blues to Robert's own style of smooth late night soul blues.

Elsewhere his own songs are very much on a par with these soul classics, opener "You move me" is probably the album's most bluesy song, with really nice stinging guitar and the instrumental "Hip tight onions" is pure Booker T and the MGs. There are also some really nice trademark Cray super-smooth soul ballads - with two of my favourites "What Would You Say" and "Pillow" starting off with strange almost psychedelic guitar effects before turning into typical Cray melodic heart-felt ballads. Looking forward to seeing Robert in early May in Birmingham during his UK tour.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE Master At Work April 1, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Robert Cray never sits still, never relies on past glories, yet he never wavers from his original musical goals. He has revamped the line-up again with a new keyboardist and drummer, but his unique brand of soul blues hasn't changed-and that, of course is a good thing. "In My Soul" continues the solid direction he had set with "This Time" and "Nothin' But Love".

Keyboardist Dover Weinberg played with Cray over twenty years ago, and is a fixture in the Portland blues scene. He has played with Terry Robb, Lisa Mann and the late Paul deLay. Long ago, he was nicknamed "The Blues Slut" because "over the years, he's been with nearly everyone!" His contribution to this disc, especially on organ bring a new dimension to the band.Drummer Les Falconer hails from Chicago's South side and as a child, would play along with his father's jazz and R&B records (using pots, pans and anything else that was handy). Like Cray and long time bassist Richard Cousins, catching The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show helped him set sights on becoming a musician. After finishing high school, Falconer moved to Los Angeles where he was hired by Johnny Guitar Watson. He has played with Billy Preston. The O'Jays and Keb Mo among many others.

Once again. a great producer is vital to the success of the project. Steve Jordan manned the controls on Cray's 1999 effort "Take Your Shoes Off, one of the strongest efforts in his long career. Speaking of Jordan in a promotional video,Cray says "the reason i like working with Steve is because he's like a fifth member of the band, keeping everyone's head in the same spot-and that's important".

Robert Cray is simply playing in a league of his own as a soul-blues singer/guitarist. Forget the Grammies, which reward the best of the mediocre (or worse); I would be most strongly persuaded by the "Craymies" for best of the best. This is one of the towering talents of our time, and this present disc has to rank way up there in his oeuvre.

There are three excellent cover versions here, two of them of Memphis Stax songs featuring completely convincing Memphis-style horns, plus a romping, enthusiastic keyboard-and-guitar-driven tribute to Stax's resident '60s instrumental geniuses Booker T & the MGs humorously titled "Hip Tight Onions." The Stax songs are David Porter-Isaac Hayes's "Your Good Thing Is About to End," originally recorded by the great Mable John in 1966, and Otis Redding's posthumously issued (in 1968) B-side "Nobody's Fault But Mine." The third cover is as deep-soul as it gets, of none other than Bobby Bland's "Deep in My Soul" from 1967.

Each of the seven originals with vocals is dazzling, with "What Would You Say" (Cray's most definitive social message song ever) and "I Guess I'll Never Know" leading the way lyrically as well as tunefully. "Fine Yesterday" sounds likes yet another Memphis soul tribute, this time to the mellow soul of Al Green and Willie Mitchell over at Hi Records. "You're Everything" features some of the most purely gorgeous guitar work ever heard on a Robert Cray disc (and that is really saying something!).

As connoted by the album's title, this is soul-blues with much more of an emphasis on the soul part this time -- and I think anyone who appreciates this genre will be mightily moved by this astounding display of deep commitment and pure talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robert Cray In My Soul (Limited Edition) July 24, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It amazes me when I get a new effort from a very good artist, and then just as I am really enjoying the effort, I hear that the artist has put out another strong effort, but with different band mates. Robert Cray never stops putting out great music for his fans, and I will be there along side them grabbing up all the excellent tunes he delivers. "You Move Me", "I Guess I'll Never Know", and "You're Everything" and prime examples of Robert Cray delivering again. Buy this great effort from a very good artist.
