Alright Again!

by: Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown

One of the most satisfying contemporary Brown discs of all for the discerning blues fan. Nothing but swinging, horn-abetted blues adorn this album, as Gate pays tribute to an influence and a protege by covering T-Bone Walker's "Strollin' with Bones" and Albert Collins's "Frosty." Brown's jauntily revives Junior Parker's "I Feel Alright Again" and Percy Mayfield's "Give Me Time to Explain," while his own numbers -- a funky "Dollar Got the Blues," the luxurious blues "Sometimes I Slip" -- are truly brilliant. ~ Bill Dahl
