|HARD LUCK GUY|
|Just as his guitar playing is one of soul music's essential signatures, so the voice cuts to the quick,almost unbearably sad and naked at times. UNCUT MAGAZINE|
|This terrific collection of leftovers is as good an intro to his searing Otis-meets-Womack howl of a voice as anything the guy recorded. MOJO|
|When It comes to unrecognised
genius,Eddie Hinton was a record breaker.
|This album is a gem,drenched in deep southern-fried blues and soul.Backed by the full Muscle Shoals team,Hinton's distinctive guitar spits out burning licks, but it his less celebrated voice which is the real glory,revealing a blue-eyed soul shouter who rivalled Joe Cocker as the blackest white voice ever. THE TIMES|
|Hinton sings with the growl
of Otis Reading and plays guitar like a southern-fried fusion of Neil
Young and Steve Cropper.His performances crackle like Bacon on a hot
skillet one moment and simmer like a pot of collard greens the next.
Jim Markel -'No Depression Mag'
|It's mostly Eddie's material,too,and
in the case of songs such as "Lovin Chain" and I Cant Be Me, top drawer
stuff:rarely has the emotional dislocation of deep soul been expressed
as clearly as in the latter.
