AllMusic Review by

Ten southern sagas, Louisiana style, featuring Jewel Records' artists, and master purchases, bolstered by Aaron Neville's "Tell It Like It Is" and Jimmy Reed's "Bright Lights, Big City." Dallas, Texas, native Bobby Patterson is quite popular in the Louisiana/Texas region and coughs up another "Jody" song with "Right of Jody"; Ric Harris imprints his style on Johnny Nash's "I Can See Clearly Now"; Barbara Carr will make you blush when she tells of the "Good Woman Go Bad"; and Tina Turner remakes Faye Adams' "Shake a Hand." Include cuts from African Music Machine, the Montclairs, Ernie Johnson, and the everlasting Cicero Blake.
