Rhodes: "Out Of Control"
guitarist, singer, and songwriter Sonny Rhodes is such a talented
songwriter, so full of musical ideas, that he's destined to
inherit the to seats left open by the untimely passing of blues
greats like Albert King and Albert Collins.
... his best albums include the ones he's recorded for Kingsnake,
for these are the records that have gotten Rhodes and his various
backup bands out on the road together throughout the U.S., Canada,
and Europe. They include The Blues Is My Best Friend, and his
1995 release, Out of Control. On these albums we hear Rhodes,
the fully developed songwriter, and not surprisingly, both releases
drew high marks from blues critics." ~ AllMusic
