Come to Papa is the fourth Evidence release from blues guitarist Carl Weathersby. While still retaining a blues edge, there is an undeniable Memphis Stax/soul influence that permeates these sessions, especially realized on the title track featuring guest vocalist Ann Peebles. Weathersby also tackles covers of Albert King's "Floodin in California" and Charles Brown on "Driftin Blues." With plenty of spirited assistance from the Memphis Horns and Hammond B-3 organ and piano soul from Lucky Peterson, this could prove to be the release that gains Weathersby a wider audience.
