**1/2 Hammer's label, Blues River Records, has recently put out two excellent CDs (Booker Brown, Joy) so I expected the same from "Work It On Me" but, although not bad, it's a fairly mediocre affair. Hammer is a Mississippi native with a Gospel background entering the ever-growing "Southern Soul" scene with a voice and sound not far removed from peers O.B. Buchana or Omar Cunningham but main producer Morris J. Williams is in hit-or-miss mode on his 6 cuts. Throwaway tracks like "Down South" & "Step'in Out Tonight" contain countless cliché's and the lifeless programming detracts from winners like "Turn This Party Out" and the title cut. Percy T. Friends doesn't fair much better on his four tracks as only the Beach-rhythmic "Steppin' Out For Love" and the percolating shuffle-bumper "One Stop Lover" warrant repeat listens. That's the problem with programmed music- if the songs aren't exceptional nor the production particularly creative there isn't much left to recommend this over the competition. Being that Blues River has been proven to produce quality music I'm certain better things are to come from Hammer. Still, "Turn This Party Out" should be a hit club track.
