Original cd in jewelcase. Studio album from november 1986. Strong persuaders biggest offence as far as i can tell, is probably that it came about at the wrong time. The eighties sheen and exuberance works in stark contrast to the blues would not you think? While hardcore blues fans probably like their blues to be gritty and melancholic, i would argue that strong persuader is still a pretty important blues album for at least bringing this music to the mainstream. Even if it does feel awfully misplaced, i will gladly take this album over most of the music that was going on in 1986. The songs are simply great, contemporary and robert cray has among one the most capable soulful voices i have heard in years. The polished production does little to devalue the music, mostly because robert cray is hardly singing about deep meaningful stuff - it is all pretty lightweight as far as blues albums are concerned. It does not need to be gritty, it just needs to be fun and catchy and it succeeds on both fronts. The last three tracks are more traditional blues numbers that really shows-off his guitar skills. Smoking gun gets a lot of attention, but i am enamoured by right next door myself. The hook of that song is pretty interesting. Actually i am just so surprised how consistently good strong persuader is all round. A titanic blast of blues power in the middle of the glammed-up big 80s. Strong persuader was a real blast of fresh air in that time. It was quite something hearing the raw and stinging smoking gun blastiing out of radios that were used to madonna. This is the real blues, maybe a little polished but still the real deal. The highlight is definitely smoking gun, but right next door is very good too. The rest of the album is fairly solid as well.
