If there were any need at this late stage to verify Earl's credentials, a few minutes spent with Ronnie Earl and Friends would see the job done. The guitarist opens with a swaggering Magic Sam riff on "All Your Love" and proceeds through a programme of exquisite blues standards such as Eddie Taylor's "Bad Boy", Little Walter's "Last Night" and James Cotton's moving slow blues "One More Mile". On the last two the joint frontman is Kim Wilson, playing harmonica and singing as well as he's ever done. Wilson features on four other tracks, among them an affectionate Howlin' Wolf pastiche, "No More", while the other "friends" of the title include Irma Thomas (gorgeous in an extended "I'll Take Care of You" that segues into "Lonely Avenue"), Luther "Guitar Junior" Johnson, the aforementioned Cotton, pianist David Maxwell, and Levon Helm on drums. It was intended to sound like a collaborative effort, and does, but inevitably the sheer, joyful versatility of Earl's playing swivels the spotlight in his direction over and over again. --Tony Russell

Advantages: Amazing tracks, loads of great hits Disadvantages: Some of his newer songs not included as this was released a while ago
...There isn't really one particular genre of music that I like, I'm into all kinds of different music genres. My favourite artist of all time is definitely Michael Jackson. After all he is the King Of Pop! But I'm also a massive fan of the King Of R&B, Mr R Kelly.
Robert Kelly was born on the 8th January, 1967, on the south side of Chicago, Illinois. He is a world famous and extremely successful R&B...
Advantages: A really good mix, well balanced tracks & all good hits Disadvantages: None for me
...I think I must have woke the neighbours with joy!
Hopefully they were dancing around the house enjoying themselves as much as I was!
If you prefer your R&B songs a little dancier than hits such as Heartbroken (T2), Hot in Here (Nelly) and Be Faithfull (Fat Man Scoop).
Thankfully the album also had some fantastic hits from the 90s with some of my personal favourites including the fantastic...
Advantages: Great value for money; some classic songs, both old and new Disadvantages: Not all songs are within the 'r&b' genre, in my opinion
...'s the beauty of this CD - as well as recent r&b chart hits, it uncovers songs which you may have forgotten about, but which are so memorable once you listen to them again.
I wouldn't say that every track on this CD is 'r&b' but that might just be me being picky. Some of them are definitely more hip-hop, rap and even pop, so I'm not sure the title of the CD is fully appropriate; however, I suppose...
