Sweet & Sour Blues, taps into Charles Wilson’s already rich bank of music and is equal parts soul and blues. The album contains 11 original songs packed into just over three-quarters of an hour, and there isn’t a duff track on there. Wilson has a rich, vibrant, emotionally-charged voice, capable of expressing love, lust and longing. It’s very much a classic soul-blues voice, particularly suiting to the pleading, desperate “Love Coupons”. He also benefits from being backed by the mighty Travis Haddix and his band, who provide stellar yet understated support letting Wilson’s performance stand and shine.
