5.0 out of 5 stars This Guy Can Really Sing!!! February 24, 2003
Format:Audio CD
We'll I actually just received my CD of James Hunter the other day and have been enjoying every one of the songs. I actually had to do a little bit of searching trying to track down Mr. Hunter's CD after hearing the song, "It's So Easy to Say" on the local blues station. If you are into the sounds of the 50's and early 60's types of Rythym and Blues you'll love these songs. They have the groove and sound of modern-day interpretations while at the same time clearly show their early R&B influences. I will definietly buy Mr. Hunter's other CD's and hope some day he'll make it to the US so that I can see him live or maybe I'll have to save up and go to the UK?
Did I say that the guy truely has a great voice and can sing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Under the Radar November 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
James Hunter is an r&b revivalist. His style is not new; however, he certainly nails the genre, managing to sound two parts Sam Cooke and one part Georgie Fame. "Don't tell me now, I know I'm on trial, so kick it around for awhile," he sings on the bubbly title track with Nick Lunt's baritone sax smoking. "Because You're Mine" rocks with a great boogie woogie tenor sax of Damian Hand bopping joyfully. "Believe Me Baby," slams out of the speakers with Hunter's expressive vocals, "I love you, baby, & I always will, but your big mouth's about to get me killed." The instrumental "Night Bus" has equal parts sleazy Neil Hefti and Dick Dale beach boogie in a great sonic explosion. "Tell Her for Me" closes the CD with Hunter sounding about as soulful as Sam Cooke, "I asked the moon if you catch her eye, tell her for me as you pass by." His cover of Clyde McPhatter's "A Lover's Question" is an excellently rendered homage. This is one of those CDs that you might have to seek out under the radar, but is well worth the journey. Bravo!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! March 28, 2006
Format:Audio CD
James Hunter is absolutely brilliant. I've had this CD since it was first released, and years later, I still haven't tired of it.

The man's voice is phenomenal. I could swear he was black, rather than English. A definite set of pipes. I'm almost convinced that a) he's either possessed by the ghost of Sam Cooke, or b) Sam Cooke is alive and well and James is just doing the whole Milli Vanilli thing. His backing band is fantastic, as well. They really have the vintage R&B thing down to a perfection. The cover of Clyde McPhatter's "Lover's Question" is so amazing. I love Mr. McPhatter's music to death... but I think James definitely one-upped him!

The only track I don't care for is "Turn On Your Love Light" with Van Morrisson... only because I don't like Van Morrison. James definitely outshines him on that track!

So yes, I highly suggest buying this album... along with the others.

5.0 out of 5 stars James Hunter's Got Soul! August 20, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Simply put, James Hunter has soul. This is wonderful Soul music for the 21st century, though it certainly sounds an awful lot like Sam Cooke's music from the 1960s, which is definitely not a bad thing at all! For me, the highlight of this disc is "Mollena", which is simply beautiful. Hunter's newest album doesn't do it for me like this release and "People Gonna Talk" do, so I recommend picking up "People Gonna Talk" first, since it is sold at a cheap price on Amazon.com and is an excellent record. If you highly enjoy that disc, you should absolutely purchase this one as well, as it is every bit as good as "People Gonna Talk", though the price is a bit high. It will be wonderful to watch James develop into one of the greatest Soul singers of all-time, along with Sam Cooke and Otis Redding.
