Watch You When You Go

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Roberta Penn
Since its inception more than three decades ago, Roomful of Blues has been through numerous personnel changes. But the band's horn-fueled brand of rhythm and blues has for the most part remained unchanged, as evidenced on the title cut of Watch You When You Go Mac Odom, whose vocals are big and churchy, is surrounded by tight horns that swell, punch, and ebb as regularly as the ocean without drowning out the singer. The bluesier "Backlash," "Over My Head," and "The Salt of My Tears" are driven by guitarist and producer Chris Vachon, whose style of playing is gritty and searing.

Barnes & Noble - Roberta Penn
Since its inception more than three decades ago, Roomful of Blues has been through numerous personnel changes. But the band's horn-fueled brand of rhythm and blues has for the most part remained unchanged, as evidenced on the title cut of Watch You When You Go Mac Odom, whose vocals are big and churchy, is surrounded by tight horns that swell, punch, and ebb as regularly as the ocean without drowning out the singer. The bluesier "Backlash," "Over My Head," and "The Salt of My Tears" are driven by guitarist and producer Chris Vachon, whose style of playing is gritty and searing. Keyboardist Hank Walther shines through with honky-tonk chops on "You Give Me Nothin' but the Blues." "Where's Bubba?" is a swinging instrumental that showcases the legendary horn section -- trumpeter Bob Enos, trombonist Ray Gennari, and tenor saxist Rich Lataille -- through individual solos. There are few horn sections in the blues world these days, but Roomful of Blues keep the spirit of Memphis and Muscle Shoals alive with Watch You When You Go.
All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
This legendary blues-jam band is rolling past three decades now, and this fiery swinging collection is one of their most powerful and varied recordings ever. In addition to the "Tower of Power on speed" energies that have earned them various awards, critical accolades, and a devoted following, this collection boasts dashes of funk, soul, the inimitable saxman Rich Lataille, and the crisp guitar excitement of Chris Vachon. At the forefront is the raspy vocal believability of Mac Odom. It's always interesting how the best blues bands can make songs of despair sound so joyous, but Roomful of Blues also takes a few more wistful looks at romance. The feisty opener "Roll Me Over" is about finding ways to keep the dying flame from burning out completely; Vachon's wailing solo punctuates the energy the "protagonist" puts into the effort. "Love to Watch You When You Go" has a blast watching a lover strut out the door. The punchy rocker "The Salt of My Tears" is about the most cheerful song about loneliness you'll ever hear. "Your Love Was Never There" captures the classic Stax soul sound beautifully, while "Wait and See" has a little boogie-woogie element. The closer, "Where's Bubba?," is original but sounds like a sly cover of any sassy big-band number ever written.
