Overview

Ruth Brown sounds her age on this late-1994 recording, but still shows a lot of spirit. Although her voice might be a little past its prime, her interpretations of the lyrics of such songs as "I'm Just a Lucky So and So," "Good Morning Heartache," "Fine Brown Frame," and her old hit "5-10-15 Hours" communicate quite well both to the London audience and those who have this CD. Her backup band, a sextet with keyboardist Bobby Forrester, altoist C.I. Williams, and tenor saxophonist Robert Kenmotsu, is excellent, and the CD on a whole gives listeners a good opportunity to experience one of Brown's mid-'90s shows.
