Jimmy McCracklin has long been one of the most prolific R&B songwriters -- his credits include such classics as 'Georgia Slop,' 'The Walk,' and 'Tramp.' He's also an outstandingly soulful vocalist and a pianist to contend with. (He turns in a fine version of Avery Parish's 'After Hours' here). All the other songs are McCracklin originals, including two superb duets with Irma Thomas. Most of the album was recorded in New Orleans, and four tracks were recorded in McCracklin's hometown of Oakland, California. On 'After Hours' (from the Oakland sessions) James Brown saxman Pee Wee Ellis leads a stellar horn section.
