A strong singer, E.G. Kight is probably most notable for her intelligent and varied lyrics which deal with love lost and won, along with other universal topics. On Southern Comfort, her music ranges from lowdown blues and blues ballads to a couple of numbers with a gospel feel. Guitarist Bill Hinds takes some fine solos along the way, the rhythm section is versatile, and a few background singers give additional power to some of the numbers. Kight's closing, "Just One More," which features her accompanied by pianist Paul Hornsby, is touching. All in all, this is an impressive effort easily recommended to modern blues fans.
