I've been a long time fan of Larry McCray ever since hearing his "Delta Hurricane" album back in 1994. So It's no surprise that i made a beeline for this album (his earliest available on MP3Caprice).

As you listen to the album, it's hard not to think of a young BB King. McCray has a subtle voice which most people would associate with RnB, but he pulls off every note and feels his music, which comes through in his lyrics. Bizarrely, the album ends not with a blues number per se, but a bluegrass themed number, which adds a nice twist to what is an electric blues album.

If you're looking for something different to add to your collection, then "Born To Play The Blues" will be a welcome addition. Slow in tempo (until the end), if you're looking for something to wind down to after a hard day, then you could do much worse than this album.
