AllMusic Review by

After years of performing in Europe, Charles Walker made his American re-emergence with some stellar tracks on Cannonball's Blues Across America: The Nashville Scene compilation. Here he returns with a full-length disc of tunes expertly produced by Fred James, who also adds much of the record's lead guitar sparkle. Johnny Jones guests on lead guitar on three tracks and duets with Walker on "Nothing a Young Girl Can Do." But, ultimately, it's Walker's seasoned voice that carries this album, a modern-day blues record with some real soul to it.
