Quinn Golden continues his output of good old-fashioned Southern soul music for the Memphis, TN-based Ecko Records label with On Q. Like his previous releases for the label -- Cover You With a Kiss (1998), What's the Name of That Thang? (1999), and A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' (2001) -- On Q finds Golden infusing the retro-soul, primarily played by producer John Ward, with his voice, which is as precious as his last name may lead you to presume. As mentioned, Ward not only produces this album but also plays much of the music, credited for the rhythm tracks and sequencing for each of the albums songs as well as the guitar. Moreover, Ward co-writes the majority of the album's songs, along with songwriting partner Raymond Moore. Overall, On Q is an excellent continuation of the work Golden had begun with his previous Ecko releases.
