Sometimes album covers work, even when they're so primitive they shouldn't. I took one look at Lowell Fulsom's In A Heavy Bag album cover and it screamed off, meaning something was going to be a little off about it, not off in a bad way, just off as in unusual. And there is something off about it. It's a sparse production, clean and funky, but you will no doubt notice the separation. Look Ma, I'm stereo!
That's not to diminish the quality of the music. Fulsom was a west coaster, but this sucker is vintage 1969 Muscle Shoals, with some tasteful picking, and horns coming out of this channel and other stuff coming out from that one. Sounds just as gloriously off as the album cover. Oh hell yeah.
