Packed to the rafters with his formidable versatility, guitarist/multi-instrumentalist JP Soars’ newest offering serves up in generous slices of tasty original roots-bound fare, each seasoned in its own particular style.  The muscle-rock of the leadoff title track yields to a Mark Knopfler-esque ballad, “Jezebel”.  Mr. Soars’ pinpoint play on the country romp “Can’t Keep Her Off My Mind” is in response to some smokin’ work from fiddler Anne Harris. Soars’ sly vocal take on the sole cover here, the Little Milton gem “That’s What Love Will Make You Do”, should garner attention as well. Nice work.
