Lydia Review

by Mark Allan

Even legendary Stax guitarist Steve Cropper couldn't save this album. Cropper produced it and played on three cuts, but his soulful approach and the band's determination to play blue-eyed funk just don't mesh. The horn section sounds ready to break out into "I Can't Turn You Loose" throughout the Cropper-penned "Consideration," an interesting glimpse into what might have been had Cold Blood chosen a different road. Singer Lydia Pense is in fine form as always.
