Buchana works the soul side of the blues streets on this debut disc which features his two singles, "Two Steps Behind" and "Back Up Lover." Buchana is a Mississippi soul singer to the bone and at no time does the listener get the impression that what's coming forth emanates from anything but the warmest and truest of feelings. Smooth as can be, Buchana works in grooves steeped in the Memphis soul stew tradition (heavy on the Al Green influence) and with songwriter/mentor Aaron Weddington supplying all the material, this is one top-flight, modern-day soul/blues album.
