A really sublime rare groove r from JR Bailey – vocalist in the Cadillacs back in their doo wop years, but a heck of a great 70s mellow soul artist in this obscure little set! JR wrote and co-produced all the tunes on the set – in a mode that steps along beautifully with a subtle groove at the bottom, but takes off with complicated touches in the backings, and some vocals from Bailey that.

· Rock Candy A band like Foghat had to work hard in the studio to harness the freewheeling energy of their concerts. This LP captures the band in their natural habitat, raising the roof with one guitar-powered boogie after another.
The quartet has a 3 man/ 1 woman harmony sound that's very hip – often applied to righteous themes worked out in a heavy soul mode, and which sounds just as great on the ballads as it does dancefloor numbers. This second album's got an even sharper edge than their debut – thanks to production and arrangements from Tony Camillo – who gives.
