Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2008-04-22JR Clark is a virile man and he wants you to know it. Most of the lyrics on this album involve JR getting a little somethin'-somethin', if you know what I mean. From the earnest vocals on "Lookin' for Love Tonight" to the ballad about infidelity, "Lady of the Night", most of these songs are lyrically laughable. I do have to say, though, that the musicianship on this disc is very good, such as Tim King's saxophone work on "Let's Go Out Tonight". Timson Taliaferro is great at keeping the beat with some nice high hat thrown in here and there. Ray Burke provides sweet organ licks throughout. Of course, I have to mention JR himself on guitar. This album was well-put-together also. Jon Ster did a nice job of mixing and engineering it in St.Joseph, Michigan. Reviewed by Rebecca Ruth in April 2008.
