All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
After establishing her blues credentials with the traditional "Mississippi Bottom Blues," Rory Block turns to a set of original folk-rock songs on which she is joined by a band and such guests as David Lindley who plays a guitar solo on "Pictures of You" and Mary Chapin Carpenter who sings harmony on "You Didn't Mind". Block brings a blues simplicity and directness to her music and lyrics, which helps ease her transition from folk-blues interpreter to folk-rock singer/songwriter.
