From the moment his Gretsch’s Bigsby dips the first slap-back chord on the title track opener, you know what you’re in for here. Previously with Imelda May’s band and having worked with Jeff Beck many times, Higham is a great rockabilly and blues guitarist and a fine rock and roll singer. With no track longer than 3:37 they flash past, each providing a great modern take on a genre beloved of Darrell. Shades of The Stray Cats permeate things and that’s never a bad thing. Turn Around And Go (with Imelda May singing harmonies) kicks along, Darrell’s guitar just on the edge of distortion. When You Smile, inspired by he and May’s daughter, features a great piano solo from Jools Holland followed by Higham’s Hank-meets-Chuck solo, while In Summer (the old Cliff Richard song) gets a refreshing makeover. Nearer To A Love is a classic a rock and roll torch song, while My Old Friend is a hybrid-picked rhythm fest with a wonderful rockabilly break. Robert Plant offers a superb vocal on the final track and Jools rejoins the action, with Higham’s hottest solo yet. It’s his best album to date, and we look forward to seeing him take it on the road!
