The title track is a mundane cross between contemporary blues and soft rock with a chorus repeated ad nauseam. Next up is the gently rocking blues of "Big Time Operator" featuring Georgie Fame
on organ. Morrison
bites into a delicious cover of Ray Charles
' "Lonely Avenue." John Lee Hooker
appears on two striking duets, "Gloria" and "Wasted Years." Sonny Boy Williamson
's "Good Morning Little School Girl" is revisited and sped up a bit with nice harmonica solo by Morrison
. Throughout, Morrison's raw vocal cords are sufficiently dramatic to bring these rhythmic stories to life. This is an earthy departure from his two previous pop efforts.
