Hmmm everbody always finds something to fault with Robben, even his best fans! :-/
I like this CD, Blue Moon was good, Keep On Running was good, Supernatural was good, the long ago stuff was good, the Bloomfield tribute I love...,etc. Check out the Solo/ Outro on"Nobody's Fault But Mine", sounds like Joe( Edit add on: Moonchild Blues solo too)?!
Rock On & Keep the Faith,

Just got it today. Preordered on Amazon. It has some good stuff on it but I definately prefer Blue Moon. His last album that came out in 2003 I think is better too. Keep on Running. Still like it though. It is #20 on Amazon right now which is amazing. Would be surprised if when Sloe Gin is released that it doesn't make the top ten.
Interesting, Jim. I liked Blue Moon but didn't really care for Keep on Running (I thought the vocals and production were a little weak in places). Just goes to show that taste is an individual thing. I think we can both agree that Robben puts on a great show live, though. And seeing him is the reason I got introduced to Joe's music, so I'll always be grateful for that, too.
I find the production or the over all sound of this album is one of the things I don't like about it. Over saturated bottom end. Like they were going for a raw sound. It isn't all like that though. It is still worth it for Moonchild Blues which has long been performed live. I have been a fan of Robbens since Talk to Your Daughter and saw him for the first time when he toured with Jonie Mitchell. I like the album it just won't be one I leave in the player for weeks at a time.
