by John Oates
Released: Apr 2011
Label: Ps Records
John Oates, the other half of that famous duo, offers a third solo album. Where his 2002 debut, Phunk Shui, was, as the title suggests, a collection of funky tunes with Oates' unexpectedly able guitar as punctuation, Mississippi Mile offers a set of soul, blues and soulful blues numbers. The raw-voiced Oates manages a great take on the Chuck Berry classic "Let It Rock" (that song never sounds bad) and does The Coasters proud with a loving re-creation of "Searchin'."
