Editorial Reviews

Product description

The Real Me

Amazon.com

"You loved me and you left me / Now you're laughing 'cause I'm still in love with you." That simplicity and directness runs through all of Doc Pomus's songs; the soulful and anguished voice of Johnny Adams does the rest. Recorded soon after Pomus's death in 1991, The Real Me brilliantly illustrates how elemental songwriting can shine brightly in the hands of an emotionally vibrant singer. Pomus's compositions become malleable lumps of clay as Adams shapes them into jazz, blues, soul, R&B, and gospel creations. Adams slips into these timeless, deeply-personal-yet-universal songs as if they were tailor-made for him. Sensitive accompaniment from Crescent City regulars, including Dr. John, Duke Robillard, and Alvin "Red" Tyler, provides the framework. --Marc Greilsamer
