A near-perfect classic from the greatly under-appreciated Bobby Charles – a cat with who worked for Chess Records as far back as the 50s, but also managed to deliver this soul-drenched swamp rock gem in 1972! Bobby's got this great sense of delivery – a bit laidback and almost laconic, without some of the other cliches of some of his contemporaries – this mode that makes you feel like you're just happening upon the man in his best spirits – even though the record's filled with top-shelf work from a super-pro lineup that includes Dr John, Geoff Muldaur, Levon Helm, Rick Danco, and others. Danko and John Simon helped produce with Bobby – and the album's got the same sort of blend of southern rock, soul, and roots that you'd also find in the best work by Tony Joe White. Titles include "Street People", "Long Face", "I Must Be In A Good Place Now", "Let Yourself Go", "Grow Too Old", "I'm That Way", and "Tennessee Blues". Set also features a slew of non-album B-sides, alternate versions, strong stuff from a completely abandoned session and 30 minute interview on this excellent 3CD set from Rhino Handmade! Includes "He's Got The Whiskey (Long Version)", "Why Are People Like That", "Cowboys And Indians", "Little Town Tramp", "Keep Cookin' Mama", "Homemade Songs (Long Version)", "Better Days", "Done A Lot Of Wrong Things" and much more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

"This here is the victory lap," raps Hove midway through The Black Album, his supposed career-capper (for this stage, anyway), and if nothing here immediately dazzles us to the core the way the best of his past singles have done, overall this is probably the most consistent front-to-back ... CD
