Kategorie: CD-Reviews | Genre: Blues/Bluesrock | Heft: Jahrgang 2014, eclipsed Nr. 165 / 11-2014 | VÖ-Jahr: 2014 | Wertung: 7/10 | Label: Alligator | Autor: AT

The blues tube Marcia Ball and her "Partners in Crime" stand on their current album for blues with a powerful shot of boogie (title track), piano dominated blues rock ("Clean My House"), sweaty Cajun ("The Squeeze Is On") and swing blues with a good portion of humor ("Get You A Woman"). Especially the decisive role of Balls, which justifies them every second, and the openness of the musicians to related styles set the album apart from other blues records. Refreshing and original.
