AllMusic Review by

Black On White collects a bunch of R&B covers of pop hits, including Run-D.M.C.'s "Walk This Way," Wilson Pickett's "Hey Jude," and Aretha Franklin's "Satisfaction." Although it sounds like a cheap gimmick, the results are surprisingly good and thoroughly listenable, with no embarrassing tracks; in fact, the best material is positively transcendent.
