If one wants to lay down some for-real Memphis soul, there’s no better way than to side up with those that created some of the best that came from that storied city.  Which is precisely what vocalist/harmonica player Tad Robinson did, hooking up with charter members of the Hi Records session band heard on so many solid tracks by the likes of Syl Johnson, Ann Peebles and, of course, Al Green.  Mr. Robinson’s vocal grit is right at home in these surroundings and well matched with genre-savvy collaborations here such as “Changes”, “Love In The Neighborhood” and “Full Grown Woman”.  A cover of the 70’s Bread hit “Make It With You” is as appealing as it is unexpected.
