Wow now that is what l call an amazing album that quite frankly left me gobsmacked. Complex, moody sensuous Blues that are perfectly constructed and the charts are to die for. Latina and Markey as a duo are incredible  performers but aside from that obvious observation they are  incredible songwriters. Love so much about this album and this will start many a music fan’s foray into Blues music. Congratulations Ric and Markey.
