This is a great new CD. Similar music to his other CDs, which is a good thing. Lots of horns and the Hammond B-3, and a great zydeco-tinged version of his "Believe Me Baby" with music legend Alan Toussaint. If this CD doesn't have you tapping your toes, check your pulse!

James Hunter new release &quot The Hard Way&quot meets the challenge of putting out an album that rivals his previous release, &quot People Gonna Talk.&quot Although Hunter shows his rockin' fervor with &quot Don't do me no favors&quot and &quot Jacqueline,&quot he shows his balladeer expertise with &quot Hand it Over&quot and the ska tinged &quot Carina.&quot As in previous albums, his voice hearkens back to Jackie Wilson, which he does with the title track and &quot Ain't going nowhere&quot . However, their seems to be more of a Ray Charles influence, which is evident in the aforementioned &quot Don't do me no favors,&quot &quot She's got a Way&quot and &quot Believe me Baby.&quot Credit is also due to Hunter's backing band that is tight sounding as ever. If you get to see them in concert, you will be energized and buzzed all night long.

I could listen to Mr. Hunter all day long (which is fortunate considering I have had to). This CD, along with his first two, belongs in everyone's music collection. It's hard not to love its retro sound and his smooth vocals.

After I heard Carina on the radio, I was hooked. There is something so absolutely slick and cool about it that I was motivated to buy the entire album without hearing another song. I've since listened to it the entire way through, and I think it contains some of the most impressively constructed songwriting that I've heard in a bit! It's one thing to borrow on past styles, instrumentally and vocally, but to add something to it, make it unique and your own at the same time? Well done, Mr. Hunter. You've done it again!
