All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
For his first album for Telarc, Jimmy Thackery -- backed by his band, the Drivers -- has come up with a near-tribute album to Eddie Hinton, covering eight of his songs on this 11-track set while offering three originals that illustrate the depth of his debt and love for the underappreciated singer/songwriter. Hinton was one of the leading white Southern soul singer/songwriters of the '70s, '80s, and '90s, and Thackery learned a lot from him -- especially how R&B, blues, and rock could be seamlessly fused and that roots are as important as strong songwriting.

It's a great way to begin his association with Telarc.

    Jimmy does it again on We Got It! Super guitar licks, great vocals and overall excellent CD. I'll be playing all of Jimmy's tunes when I get old and gray and need a retirement income.
