O’s Notes: This is a nice blend of rock, blues and adult contemporary. Robben is up to his usual high standards on guitar and he adds some welcomed surprises with guest artists. Siedah Garrett sings backing vocals on a couple of tunes and Mavis Staples leads a vocal duet with Ford on “Peace, Love & Understanding”, one of the highlights of the session along with “Cannonball Shuffle” featuring a rousing solos from Ford and Bob Malach on tenor sax. We like the pure blues numbers best!
