Pianist/vocalist Mr. Wainwright’s rock-solid boogie and growling pipes are present and well accounted for here.  The set is further flavored with tasty variation courtesy of the band’s songwriter-in-residence, bassist Stephen Dees.  Change-ups from the roadhouse rave-ups include the deep gospel-flavored “When The Day Is Done” and the decidedly-N’arlens styled “Genuine Southern Hospitality”.  Other standouts include “If It Ain’t Got Soul” and the title track.
