More Review

by Al Campbell

More was originally released on the budget label Crown with the majority of tracks recorded just before he changed record labels in 1962 from Kent to ABC Paramount. The majority of these tracks were recorded in the early '60s with the exceptions of "Shut Your Mouth" and "Baby, Look at You," which date from the mid-'50s. Stylistically, the compositions embrace mature, string-laden ballads alongside straight R&B shuffles and urban blues. While More may not contain the strongest material in the legendary bluesman's massive discography, he does sound primed for his 1965 breakthrough disc, Live at the Regal.
