Overview

Adams kept cranking out solo albums for the Rounder imprint and this one was the ninth such effort, finding him in tip-top shape vocally and in full command of his consummate powers. In addition to top-notch new material from Dan Penn ("It Ain't the Same Thing"), Carson Whitsett ("Bulldog Break His Chain"), Bobby Charles ("I Don't Want to Know") and Jonnie Barnett ("Going Out of My Mind Sale"), Adams takes on William Bell's "You Don't Miss Your Water," Brook Benton's "Looking Back" and Percy Sledge's "It Tears Me Up." Closing out the album is a duet with Aaron Neville on the gospel chestnut "Never Alone."

This is one of those albums that you can play multiple times and discover something new with each listening. Song selection and musicianship are impeccable, and the range of emotions, feeling and subtleties in phrasing conveyed in Adams' voice are amazing. If this isn't a masterpiece, it doesn't miss by much.

First of all the song ''Going Out of My Mind Sale is a GREAT song title, Which makes it a great HOOK. Lyrics are clever and witty. The writers Jonnie Barnett and Butch Dillon has done it again!! The Music of this song flows and has really cool R&B changes. Johnny Adams performance was awesome, this song was perfect for him''
