Why Am I Treated So Bad!

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
By any stretch of the imagination, it would have been hard for Cannonball Adderley to follow up the stunning Mercy, Mercy, Mercy! with anything quite as strong or inspired. This set follows the exact same m.o. Producer David Axelrod invited a group of friends into the Capitol studios, supplied them with free booze, warmed them up, and brought out the band the same lineup: bassist Victor Gaskin, drummer Ron McCurdy, pianist Joe Zawinul, cornetist Nat Adderley, and Cannonball on alto to tear into a group of covers and originals.

By any stretch of the imagination, it would have been hard for Cannonball Adderley to follow up the stunning Mercy, Mercy, Mercy! with anything quite as strong or inspired. This set follows the exact same m.o. Producer David Axelrod invited a group of friends into the Capitol studios, supplied them with free booze, warmed them up, and brought out the band the same lineup: bassist Victor Gaskin, drummer Ron McCurdy, pianist Joe Zawinul, cornetist Nat Adderley, and Cannonball on alto to tear into a group of covers and originals. The better moments here include the Latin-tinged "I'm on My Way" written by Nat and featuring a beautifully lyrical solo by him and a cool little read of the Pops Staples tune the album is titled for featuring a killer little Rhodes piano part by Zawinul with a mournful dual head by Cannonball and Nat. The other hard groover is Nat's "The Other Side," which takes the outside track in Cannonball's solo. Zawinul's tunes are starkly more original in contrast -- particularly "One for Newk" -- but sound less inspired somehow. The CD version issued by Capitol in 2006 contains two bonus tracks with workmanlike versions of Jimmy Heath's fine "Heads Up! Feet Down!" and an overly long take on the Blane-Martin standard "The Girl Next Door." The album doesn't quite live up to its predecessor, but it is a burner and Adderley fans are likely to want to own it.
