Review: Katie Knipp has the voice of Janis Joplin and the power of Aretha Franklin, combined with a killer group of musicians that know how to rock. Her version of blues is raw and gritty, and she’s comfortable with a myriad of musical influences in her underlying soundtrack. The heavy use of resonator guitar on the first track and a climatic bass line on the second track announce to the world that this lady can sing any style she wants. There isn’t a weak track on the album, and quite frankly, this one is the perfect candidate for the repeat button. Just like the title suggests, you'll want to take this one with you.
Recommendation: You need this one in your collection, so go out and Get it.
