Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This 1996 album picks up where Dancing the Blues left off three years earlier, with producer John Porter and most of the same studio cast. There's more of a New Orleans flavor this time, with barrelhouse pianist Jon Cleary contributing a couple of originals to go with such classics as Jesse Hill's "Ooh Poo Pah Doo" and Fats Domino's "Let the Four Winds Blow." Bonnie Raitt and a full vocal chorus help kick "I Need Your Loving" into overdrive. Mahal's one original is the tender, acoustic country-sounding "Lovin' in My Baby's Eyes." --Rick Mitchell

This is a great album,specially enriched with the marvellous participation of Jon Cleary,for me,one of the best piano players of ever.Really a participation of any Louisiana's piano player is a great thing for a good blues album!!!Specially some musicians like Jon Cleary,Dr.John,and Professor Longhair... This is a very true experience of this great bluesman,Taj Mahal,with guest appearances of Eric Clapton and Bonnie Raitt.I really loved the first track,an original of Taj's style.All of the others are pure Louisiana blues,and i really recomend to the bluesfans all over the world to listen this fantastic, Jon Cleary. He's a bluesman unrecognized,that deserves an accurated listened from those that really loves good music.You must try to listen the other Cleary's works such "Alligator Lips and Dirty Rice" and recently "Moonburn".What we can say is that Taj worked right to choose those great musicians and the results, are all inside this great cd!!!

There is certainly nothing wrong with this album, everything is done quite well. It's just that once you've listened to Taj enough, you get to start expecting the unexpected, and this album is as straight-forward as I've heard him play. "Lovin' in My Baby's Eyes" is an absolutely beautiful and highly emotional original. If you don't get shivers after listening to that one, you best pick up a new hobby. After that though, it's surprisingly simple blues. Nothing wrong with any of the tracks, but it's just not very adventurous.

From the opning notes this album is great. I've been listening to it for 6+ years and it never bores me. Upbeat tracks, good horns and great guests (Clapton & Raitt) I think this is an essential Taj pick.

The back-up band is extreme. Players are exceptional. It's all good. These last nine words are really and truly unnecessary.

My 3 favorite Taj Mahal albums so far had been his first two (both released in the 60's) and "Dancing the Blues." I now have a 4th! Get down!
