I have to say first and foremost that I dig the package this CD came in. I looked at the back of it and it just has that kind of 60s look to it. That kind of old look that record covers used to have before people got more artistic on that sort of stuff. This guy has some interesting influences such as Al Green and Stevie Wonder and he pretty much makes that his own. This has a very underground feel to it. He doesn't have that slick production sound to his music which makes it raw and gritty and that's the way you should like it. He belts these songs out in that gritty sort of flawed way soul singers tend to do and it just sounds fantastic. It's got a classic sort of feel to it. Sometimes almost a Motown kind of sound. All in all this has an old school soul feel to it and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants something a little different.
