If the recent Allstars Collective was your bag then this set will definitely be for you. The vocals are exceptionally soulful in the best blue-eyed sense and all the backings on here consist of real instruments. I am sure you will appreciate the superb “I Remember”, the southern Booker T Jones / MGs-ish “You Are My Everything”and gentle, acoustic soul of “We Can Make It”. This song has a musical element of the Isley's mid-70s ballads to it, and for that alone the track is a winner. The sax-laden “It's Love” along with the organ is similar to the work on the excellent JK album from 1998, and Patrick's suave vocals are nothing short of excellent. “You Have Made Me So Very Happy” would easily attract fans of the Average White Band among others. This brassy number is another favourite of mine from this CD. The set made its début in Japan in 2006 but is now available in the US. Please do not overlook this album – I think that the man is a great talent and can turn his talents to any genre he wishes. He satisfies me on various fronts so you'll find no complaints from me!
