This is it...a "nothing but the Blues" masterpiece from Cincinnati, Ohio's King of the Six-String -- Sonny Moorman. Sonny opens this record with the smoldering slow Blues gem "Drowning on Dry Land" from By Request, in a tour-de-force performance that evokes the legendary Roy Buchanan, then opens the throttle wide with passionate, inspired renditions of "Crossroads" and "Born Under a Bad Sign," also taken from By Request -- delivered in Sonny's full "Clapton is God" guitar tone. Later in this fine CD he will summon up an incredible version of Freddie King's "Have You Ever Loved a Woman?" from By Request 2 with the same soulful Claptonesque vibe. In another homage to the English Blues revival, Sonny renders a Jeff Beck-sired version of B.B. King's "Rock Me Baby"-- 100% guaranteed to rock your plimsoles! Crossing the Atlantic, Sonny cooks up some tasty Texas Blues with "Blue Jean Blues" and "A Fool for Your Stockings" -- done to a turn just as Billy Gibbons would have it (he's a fan of Sonny's, too). Sonny then turns his guns on the Blues chestnuts "CC Rider," " Dust My Broom," and "You Shook Me." giving the first another Tele-Master treatment straight from the Book of Buchanan, while the latter two form Sonny's lap-steel concerto honoring the slide work of Duane Allman and Jimmy Page.
