"Originally recorded in France and released in 1984 guitairst Melvin Taylor is joined by organist and pianist Lucky Peterson on this set. All songs written by Melvin Taylor, except "T.V. Mama" (L.W. Turner), "I'll Play The Blues For You" (J. Beach), "Cadillac Assembly Line" (M. Rice) and "Voodoo Daddy" (L. Baker, Jr... Guitarist Melvin Taylor's fluid, smartly constructed solos and understated yet winning vocals are surprises on this 1984 nine-track set recorded for Isabel and recently reissued by Evidence on CD. Taylor is not a fancy or arresting singer but succeeds through his simple, effective delivery of lyrics, slight inflections, and vocal nuances. His guitar work is impressive, with skittering riffs, shifting runs, and dashing solos. Organist/pianist Lucky Peterson is an excellent second soloist, adding cute background phrases at times, then stepping forward and challenging or buttressing Taylor's playing with his own dazzling lines. - Ron Wynn Personnel: Melvin Taylor (guitar, vocals), Lucky Peterson (organ, piano), Titus Williams (bass), Ray Allison (drums) Reissue producer: Jerry Gordon."
