Liner Notes
WHEN ELMO JAMES SINGS "THE SKY IS CRYING", IT IS ALMOST POSSIBLE TO HEAR THE DROPS FALLING. THIS IS A MAN WHOSE TALENT ALLOWS HIM TO CREATE A TOTALLY CONVINCING PICTURE OF THE LYRICS HE IS SINGING. IN A LARGE SENSE, ELMO JAMES IS MORE THAN A SINGER. HE IS A STORY-TELLER OF CONSIDERABLE APTITUDE, POSSESSING A TALENT AND AN INSIGHT THAT ENABLES HIM TO COMMUNICATE EVERYTHING THAT HE FEELS. ELMO IS MOST AT HOME WITH THE BLUES, AS THIS ALBUM ABLY ILLUSTRATES. THE TITLE SONG AND OTHERS SUCH AS I CAN'T STOP LOVING YOU", I DONE SOMEBODY WRONG" AND "I'M WORRIED" ARE BLUES OF THE IT WAILING" VARIETY, FULL OF SUFFERING AND PAIN. "FINE LITTLE MAMA" AND "ROLLIN' AND TUMBLIN"' ARE HAPPY BLUES, UP-TEMPO WITH A HAPPY INFECTIOUS BEAT. "BOBBIE'S ROCK7 AND "ONE WAY OUT" ARE INSTRUMENTALS THAT ARE INTERSPERSED WITH APPROPRIATE COMMENTS BY ELMO JAMES. THIS IS AN ALBUM THAT IS WELL PACED IN TERMS OF MATERIAL AND PERFORMANCE. MAKE WAY FOR ELMO JAMES WHO HAS QUITE A WAY WITH A SONG.
