Ready for Love (2003)

Details Release Date: Feb 11, 2003; Lead Performance: John Hammond

Gravelly-voiced, harmonica-blowin' Hammond expands his palate by cookin' with Los Lobos' multi-instrumentalist David Hildago and Texas Tornado/SDQ keyboardist Augie Meyers. Tracks segue from Beaumont-style hillbilly (George Jones' ''Color of the Blues'') to proto-rock (the Drifters' ''Money Honey'') to R&B (Willie Dixon's ''Same Thing''). Hammond's own raucous come-on, ''Slick Crown Vic,'' fits in perfectly.
