. . . Wham! Right between the eyes, we take a direct hit! Rue Davis comes into the studio for a reworking of Z.Z. Hill's hit, Love Is So Good When You're Stealing It . . . and, wow, does he bring out the best in the lady
. . .oh, yes, she's certainly a Soul Singer. . .
[The] sultry Surrender hits the spot and the ballad, I Belong To You brings to mind the sort of stuff that the likes of Desiree Coleman or Janice McClain were doing in the late eighties. There's a slight swamp sound to much of Patti's self penned Room At The End Of The Hall . . . The lady [gets] to demonstrate her versatility by way of East Of Midnight. Written by Patrick Hazell, it's a smouldering jazzy item on which Art Munson's acoustic guitar is the icing on the cake. . ."
