*** Henry has a strong, elastic tenor voice like Chuck Roberson that's just as clean as it was back when he was fronting the Louisiana-based R & B group Patrick Henry & The Liberation Band. Since then he's been one of those talented vocalists that falls beneath the radar anywhere outside the chitlin' circuit but has enough interested listeners to always make a little noise in the South. "Contagious" comes out swinging with a silly, boastful intro (by Vinnie V) before pushing you to the dancefloor with the infectious (or should I say "contagious") mover "Mr Excitement (I'm Real)". It contains a simply hypnotic refrain of "Shake that thang like a salt shaker!" and an intermittent rap by Big B. Nice, slick production by the song's author, Brian Broussard. The first single likely is the bumper "I'm Hooked" with those tasty synth horns and Tyrone Davis-inspired vocals. I'm telling you this sound will never get old.

"Groove On" (in two versions) aptly sums up the vibe of the "party Blues" circuit with lyrics: "Patron and Hennessey/You're looking good to me/let me invite you to my world/Grey Goose and Alazine (?!?)/Let's dance the night away/Tonight I'm calling you my girl". Meanwhile "Let Me Love You" and the title cut are seductive slowies with molasses dripping vocals. "Bye Bye Baby" and "Tears Of Yesteryears" are a couple effective heart tuggers easy as cream on the ears. That pretty much goes for the record as a whole.
