Ready for Love

Posted on

Gravelly-voiced, harmonica-blowin’ Hammond expands his palate by cookin’ with Los Lobos’ multi-instrumentalist David Hildago and Texas Tornado/SDQ keyboardist Augie Meyers. Tracks segue from Beaumont-style hillbilly (George Jones’ ”Color of the Blues”) to proto-rock (the Drifters’ ”Money Honey”) to R&B (Willie Dixon’s ”Same Thing”). Hammond’s own raucous come-on, ”Slick Crown Vic,” fits in perfectly.
