Forget what that BC guy said, this is the best thing Pat has ever done. She smolders on “Evening”, and the title track flat out rocks the blues (I had the good fortune to see her live at an outdoor concert in 1999, and that song brought the house down!). “So Long” is a wistful, bluesy tune reminicsant of an old 60’s love ballad (probably is). From start to finish, this just a really fun CD. Makes you feel like youre in one of those old 50’s night clubs, with Pat sitting there on the piano, like Michelle Pfeiffer in “The Fabulous Baker Boys”. Darn near everyone I’ve ever played this for immediately ran out and bought a copy for themselves. For another really good album, with a more alternative, and textured slant, check out Pat’s “Inamoratta” CD. To me, these are Pat Benatar’s best two pieces of work. Forget that stuff she did in the 80’s, this is Awesome stuff!
