Album of the week is: Alfa Mist's Bring Backs
''Something to dream on'' Saturday morning listen, best time of the week: Here's the Colonel, guitar deity Steve Cropper – you've heard him on 'Green Onions,' 'Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay' and 'Soul Man' – on 'One Good Turn' from new album Fire It Up. The vast majority of the tracks stand up to the ultimate test (forget chin-stroking scrutiny although there's time for that): frequent, sustained, play. Put it this way you could be frittering away precious time needlessly if you don't beat a trail directly to this horns and Hammond-soaked source. Beefy vocals are by Roger C Reale. Nioshi Jackson is on drums, among the personnel. You'll be listening for the genius Cropper guitar sound, the breaks, and digging the riffing horns, these touches that magnify to mean more than any of us will ever begin to know.
