The swishing “Listen Baby” with muted trumpet and old school sensibility features George on vocals himself. This is very soulful indeed and one of the most widely accessible cuts on the album. The warm and summery “Mercy” hits us with a lot of brass and if you were taken by the latest Brian Culbertson set then this will be one for you. I particularly am drawn to “Somebody Laid It On Us”. The spacey opening and guitar lead into something rather more dramatic – like something he would have done with 101 North – and soulful. This really is superb and will appeal to fans old and new. Again, you should love “Right On Time” which is more like his 90s output – think “No Rhyme, No Reason” and you're there. The politically charged “Sudan” is a poignant inclusion which is darkened with some serious strings and socially conscious lyrics. Nice to see it on here to be honest. Balancing this is the very upbeat and Earth, Wind & Fire-ish “Are You Ready” which is SUPERB. I would venture that the cut most readers will warm to instantly. It threatens to break into “September” in a few places! With the bubbly and essential “Images Of Us” closing the set in a fantastic 70s Jazz-Fusion manner a la Ramsey Lewis "Don't It Feel Good" album, the CD closes. “Dukey Treats” is definitely the best set the great man has recorded in many a year and is a CD that I can put on and leave on. It has many layers, it has darkness and shade, love, tragedy and humour. What more could we ask for?!
