“This Old Music” is also a cracker – it explains exactly what is so good about soul music. I know exactly what he means about the warm breeze blowing through the leaves and Al Green on the airwaves. Al's new CD was recorded just for a summer's day! Perfect! Another song which can be included into the 'great for a summer's day' category is the superb midtempo number “The Right Woman”. For Southern lovers, with a hint of the blues, is “Check To Check 2008” which would not be out of place on a Willie Clayton album. The bill collectors may keep on coming to your door, Omar, but your quality tunes keep on coming to our attention! The guitar licks and beats do a lot to bring life to Omar's edgy vocals on “If You Want Me”, the guitar really draws us in – the lick is an hypnotic one. Omar's passion shines throughout this song making this s definite highlight. Another quality groove is the melancholic “Where Would I Be” which, musically, is totally modern in style but has southern leanings lyrically. This shows how the man can intertwine both styles seamlessley and effortlessly. His strongest set to date and one for a ever-increasing fanbase.
