We gave it a B+

A gorgeously soulful voice, biting guitar style, and winning delivery haven’t hurt Cray any, but his secret weapon may be the topflight material that sets him apart from others mining the blues/R&B tradition. Expertly crafted songs, including ”Right Next Door (Because of Me)” and ”Smoking Gun,” highlight this solid survey of Cray’s 1980-’97 breakthrough years. B+
