Burly Larry McCray crashed the consciousness of the blues world with his stunning debut album, comprised of equal parts blues, soul, and rock. Guitar fanatics will no doubt wax rhapsodic about McCray's blazing pyrotechnics on "Nobody Never Hurt Nobody with the Blues," but it's the mellower R&B material buried toward the end of the CD -- "Secret Lover," "Me and My Baby" -- that best displays the warmth of the young bluesman's voice. Tab him for 21st-century blues stardom!
