Robert Cray Band In My Soul
Provogue With this new studio album release and a UK tour about to kick off, you know that some of the material here is bound to get an airing. But while it may be the usual album/promo tour scenario there’s nothing run-of-themill about this collection of songs. Robert’s soulful and controlled approach to the blues presents a different aspect to the genre. The opening track, You Move Me, is typical Cray with its driving guitar licks and rhythm stabs, so we’re off to a great start. As a whole the album covers a huge cross-section of material that shows off Robert’s songwriting, playing and vocal talents. Loaded with light and shade, all of the songs have that quality about them that you know will transport well to the stage. There are good grooves, too, on I’ll Guess I’ll Never Know, the funky Nobody’s Fault But Mine and smooth late night jazzer Hold On. There’s also a limited edition available that includes a bonus track called Pillow, which is a cool, sophisticated, heartfelt track with great vocals - a worthy addition in our opinion.
