"... introduced a new generation of mainstream rock fans to the language and form of the blues."
- Rolling Stone

"Cray is a mature multithreat talent: fearless formal innovator, brainy bandleader, terse yet fluent guitarist and the most authoritative singer to emerge from blues since Bland and King. Add an array of gems and you have not just a great blues album but a great album. A+."
- Robert Christgau

Blues guitarist Robert Cray's double platinum breakthrough is included on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 best albums of the 1980s and remains one of the highest-charting blues album in history, peaking at number 13 on the Billboard mainstream album chart in 1987. A good part of the album's success was due to the hit single Smoking Gun which Rolling Stone called "a smoldering tale of jealousy and murder."

"The recording sessions have been pretty much the same for each of our albums. I just thought the quality of the music we were making was getting better. It was about the whole band being together."
- Robert Cray

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
