What does one do once they’ve made goo-goo-eyes at Captain Lou Albano, danced her way across the radio dials, and gone full circle, from just being a “Girl Who Just Wants To Have Fun,” to a woman who wants her dynamic voice and stunning vocal range to be taken seriously?  Well a great place to start, especially if one has the chops, the attitude, and the ability, are the stultify, simmering, night club, slow grind on the table top blues ... of course it might help to surround yourself with some legendary blues originals like Allen Toussaint, B.B. King, and Jonny Lang ... and of course one is going to want to cover some of the most original blues songs to ever melt in the moonlight ... and since you’re a woman, you’re gonna’ make these traditionally male songs ever so much more sexy by giving them a female take ... and finally, it just may bring things to a proper popping boil by recording this new piece of wax using a traditional analog equipment.

The first time I heard this recording it sounded like something lost in time, and only recently discovered.  All of the songs are heartfelt, bright, breathless, and push like lovers in the night, creating a dreamy sweating bit of hip shaking romance that you can feel, but just can’t touch.  Go on, listen to “Rollin’ and Tumblin,” or the shivering “Down So Low” and try and tell me it ain’t so.

All I can say is, “Cyndi, it’s about time.”
