The album features original compositions as well as covers of blues classics. Personal and autobiographical tracks (like “Dog Me Down” or “Walk Away From Me”) provide an authentic touch, while the emotional range varies from seductive to uplifting, including social commentary (“High Water” and “NWO”).
