This journeyman Texas soul bluesman steps out from his usual role as a sideman for Bobby "Blue" Bland, the Upsetters, and others to deliver an excellent blues album, taking on the main guitar and vocal duties. Other than a skillful version of "When a Man Loves a Woman," this is all original material from Hughes. The album of top-notch Telecaster blues concludes with an interview track. ~ Tom Schulte
