Fourteen high energy blues tracks played by Howard McCullum (vocalist/bassist), Dan Bellini (guitarist & harmonica player), Jim Christopulos (drummer), and guitarist Steve Asma. "She Can Cook" contains all the elements of good blues, humor, good playing, heartfelt singing, realistic lyrics about a woman who's not a beauty queen, or a whole host of other things, but can cook. Some songs, like "Nightmare Man," are as much Country as Blues. However, they never stray far from genuine blues as is evident with "Baby's Painting The Town," "Turn On Your Love Light," "Black Cat," and two pile drivers: "Strung Out On The Blues," and "The Blues Are Killing Me." Bellini displays his mouth harp skills on "I'm Gonna Hate Myself In The Morning," and a guitarist plays some saucy riffs on "Let Me Be Your Slave." They give Jimmy Reeds' "I Got My Mojo Working" a steroid injection, Bellini's harmonica drives the classic at a frantic pace. The sound is mediocre, but Howard and the White Boys' enthusiasm helps to buffer the primitive recording. ~ Andrew Hamilton
