Mixed At Ardent Studios, Memphis, Tenn:

Over the course of my career, I've been extremely fortunate to have worked with some outstanding musicians.

And my good fortune seems to be holding. When I first heard Lola, I was smiling from minute one: this was a wonderful opportunity to showcase a new singer/songwriter, work with some great new musicians (and a few old friends). Most of all, it was a chance to have some fun playing good music. This is an honest album, played with love. Enjoy.

Outstanding in Every Aspect
Review written by Gerry Nason, June 10th, 2014

I purchased this CD in 1991 when it was released. Over the course of the following 23 years, I have had more listening enjoyment from this masterpiece than 99% of my 5,000 CD collection. It really is an enjoyable collection of bluesy, classic rocky type songs.

Lola Thomas has a refreshingly captivating voice. The songs are built around melodies that make you want to sing along. The lyrics are interesting and relevant. The backing musicians employ smart choices on the Hammond B3 organ and guitar effects to set the bluesy atmosphere.

There is but one singular problem with this CD and it is a huge one! Once you become addicted to this recording, you eventually have to face the fact that there is no more coming. This is a one off gem, the likes of you won't see again. I've held out hope for a reunion for nearly a quarter century and it hasn't happened yet.

Review written by Brian Durkin, December 15th, 2005

I came across this CD in a bargain rack several years ago and I kept in my cars CD player for while. I was presently surprised because Id never heard of Lola Thomas and it grew on me.

It was a cold rainy day and I was stuck in the house most of the day, so I pulled out some CDs I'd not heard in a while, including this one. I was reminded that Lola Thomas is a very good singer and her pictures look pretty hot too.

I recommend it to anyone that likes that country/rock-a-billy blend.

Simple songs great backing brilliant vocals
Review written by Steve Woodhall, January 30th, 2005

I came across this album in a rubbish box at a car boot sale. price 1.00. This to me is a quality recording with very good arrangement and excellent vocals. [lola thomas] If this album had been recorded by someone realy famous, it would have been a masive success. Lola thomas is, in my opinion, an outstanding vocalist.
