Whisky and Wine and Come on Baby have a bit of folk rock on the side too. Rock rhythm guitar comes through nicely and allows the harmonica float in oh so slick. Beans on Toast รข€“ the title track reminds me of the late J.J. Cale a lot while Sending my love to you is a great ballad. This is a great album with many diverse inclinations. Sites -
