Big Joe is a rarity in the blues world. He's a drummer who doubles as a vocalist. That's about as rare as a left-handed baseball catcher. His sound is akin to Roomful of Blues, but more stripped down (less horny, you can say). He relies on well-chosen vintage material, but he's also capable of writing first-class originals. The title track is one of those originals, as it shuffles along a la mid-1950s B.B. King. Ironically, he covers a couple mid-1950s B.B. King tracks--"Bad Case of Love" and the Jay McShann-penned "Confessin' the Blues." The track here that's an absolute jaw-dropper--especially if you're from these parts--is the swamp-pop weeper "Evangeline." You'll swear you've heard this song on an old Guitar Gable or Cookie and the Cupcakes 45, but you haven't. It's a Big Joe original. Another witty original is "Property Line," which "borrows" the arrangement from Israel "Popper Topper" Tolbert's "Big Leg Woman." So is the telling lament of the nine-to-five grind "Face the Facts." Definitely recommended to those with a taste for the blues.--Jeff Hannusch, OffBeat Magazine, April 2011 issue, [...]
