Guitarist/vocalist and arch Republican Lee Atwater, along with a star-studded list of soul artists, ignite on 13 blue chip live performances of great R&B songs. Chuck Jackson, Carla Thomas, B.B. King, Isaac Hayes, Sam Moore, and gospel singer Bobby Jones contribute vocals; and Michael Toles, the Memphis Horns, ex-Motown bassist Bob Babbitt and Billy Preston, the music. This pleasing set is set off by Chuck Jackson and Sam Moore's scathing rendition of "Hold On I'm Coming"; Isaac Hayes' "I'm in the Mood"; B.B. King's guitar and vocal licks on "Red, Hot & Blue" and "Buzz Me"; and Jackson and Carla Thomas' fiery version of "Rescue Me." This budget-priced CD is a bargain and will make a delightful addition to an R&B collector's stash.
