AllMusic Review by

Gutbucket Southern soul at its absolute best, with the distict aftertaste of cornbread and molasses. The outrageous titles tell it all, including Chuck Roberson's bawdy "Whisky Glass and a Woman's Ass," Barbara Carr's "Make Me Feel It Like You Feel It Too," the late Ollie Nightingale's insidious "I'll Drink Your Bath Water Baby," and Bill Coday's "Her Love Is Good Enough to Put in Collard Greens." This is hard-nosed, adult-theme soul, old school style, with an underlying thread of broad humor. The perfect ice breaker for those backyard barbecues or late-night card games.
