The classy Errol Linton's second album has been mooted for a long time, but is now definitely out. It builds on the band's previous album ("Vibing It!) injecting a healthy dose of reggae into the blues. Linton continues to be one of the best harp players on the go, and the band's songwriting goes from strength to strength (nine of the 12 tracks are originals). This is one of those albums that will appeal to blues lovers everywhere, and may even spark an interest in reggae via tracks such as "Man Shot Down" and the excellent dub instrumental "Skank Easy" on which the legendary Augustus Pablo gets a songwriting credit.
