This oh-so-Fabulous Thunderbird went solo in'89; in 2010, he honored his musical heroes (from Jimmy Reed to Willie Nelson) with this excellent album. Check out his spins on "Come Love; Wheel of Fortune; Funny How Time Slips Away; Blues for Sale; Send Me Some Lovin'; Just a Little Bit; RM Blues", and more!

Alright now, Im diggin it! Im a big JV fan, love his sound and style, and here it is in spades. This album has possibly the best sound of any of his ablums so far. Sounds real off the cuff and live, in a good way. Very raw, bright and loose. The horn section is hot, the rhythms are "butt-rockin"! and of course the guitar is a hot wire putting electricity to the whole thing, although his tone is not quite as overdriven or up-front in the mix as on his other albums, probably due to his recent switch to flatwound strings, but still sounds pretty badass just the same! Lou Ann Barton even duets on a couple tunes, the whole band sounds great and the production is really first take sounding, and thats a good thing!
I read in some magazine that Jimmie recorded this like a grouping of singles, one or two tracks here, a track there, A Side / B Side, all in Austin, just like they used to do it in the good ol days. That approach is likely why it all sounds so vibrant and energetic. It definitely puts you in a smokey old barroom somewhere out there when you close your eyes. Sounds you'd hear suckin down a few brews in some greazy little bowling alley, feelin good!
These are all covers of old heroes like Roscoe Gordon, Roy Milton, even Willie Nelson, and of course theres a nod to lucky charm Jimmy Reed, and 1 original Vaughan instrumental, "Comin and Goin".
If you like Jimmie Vaughan youll dig this, hell you probably already got it. If youre just figuring things out, this is as good as any place to start, with the exception of "The Essential Jimmie Vaughan" which has a little of everything on it.
Highly recommended, show some support for one of the last true Texas Bluesmen left!

There are some really great guitar players out there but nobody lays out R&B cool like Jimmie Vaughan. His "less is more" approach, combined with great material, a crack band, Lou Ann Barton, and crisp, swinging arrangements make this an album that you'll want to hear again and again.

This CD is GREAT. The music makes you happy to be alive and thankful for musicians that can deliver the goods with soul, elegance and style. Yes, it's the blues, but you'll smile through the entire album. As soon as it's over, you'll want to play it all over again. Thank you Jimmie for carrying on the tradition of the blues into an age that surely needs it!

This album has a little of everything, as the title might suggest. Some more traditional JV Blues stuff, some Ballads, some forays into a more Country Blues style...all featuring the signature guitar style of Jimmie Vaughan.

JV's guitar playing is as unique as it has ever been. His phrases are expressive and clear. He is a master at making notes provoke feelings and puts a great value on each individual note that he plays. If you are expecting SRV, you will be a bit thrown off. Jimmie is his own guitar player with his own style that is wonderful for its own merits.

I've never been a huge Lou Ann Barton fan but her vocals do add another dimension to the songs she guests on. I think people who are into the country-blues style will enjoy these tracks a lot.

This is a cool album with a lot of variety.

I just saw Jimmie Saturday night, 9/11/10, and just bought this one today, only three days later. After one spin I can only say that's its great stuff; I'm already playing it again. It was recorded in Austin and produced by Jimmie, and it's the same great Texas swing that I heard Saturday night, I recognize a lot of the tunes. If you're in the mood for some authentic Southern soul influenced R&B, go get this record RIGHT NOW. There is only one original tune here, Vaughan's instrumental "Comin' and Goin'", and it is the hottest tune on the record. Very much of a 1950's sound to the record. NO ONE is making records like this one any more; if they are, someone better tell me about it.

Happy, relaxed and impeccably produced, this is one of the most satisfying follow up albums I've ever bought after seeing a band live. Jimmie, Lou Ann Barton and Tilt-A-Whirl, with an emphasis on sax over keyboard, put on a fantastic show a few months ago in Orlando and followed it up with this instant classic.

Although I still give "Do You Get the Blues" my favorite JV CD by a nose, this is really just as good. To complete my JV must list, don't forget about the less known "Strange Pleasure." In a music world now based on single song downloads, there's not a weak track on any of the three disks.

Friends and family are getting their Xmas presents early this year. I can't wait that long to share the joy of this new, fabulous Texas blues/swing collection.

No disappointment in this CD- If you love Jimmy Vaughan's style of Texas swing- blues- boogie- you'll enjoy this CD. Some classic takes on standards are also enjoyable

Jimmie Vaughan has never disappointed!! I have everyone of his solo albums and several Fabulous Thunderbird albums. I can't get enough of his style of music. Makes me want to move to Austin Texas!! This ablum is fantastic. Each one of these songs is a winner. My favorites are Comin' & Goin, Wheel of Fortune, How Can You Be So Mean, She's Got the Blues For Sale and Funny How Time Slips Away. I have had this album for 2 weeks and have just about worn it out. I thought Johnny Winter's version of Just A Little Bit was great; however, Jimmie's is even better. Lou Ann Barton really busts a lung and the band is superb. All guitar players: YOU MUST HAVE THIS ALBUM. ED
