Mike Mattison - You Can't Fight Love

Soul Echo Two

Quite an array of soul sounds are reflected by this former singer with the Derek Trucks Band, from smooth to funk, and opener You Can't Fight Love has the feel of Al Green, though Mattison's vocal doesn't reach the sweet falsetto, or try to.  There are great guitar solos and horn backings to provide plenty of umph to this solid vocal performance, but the nod to a soulful past is what pleases most because it is presented so well.
