Debut album from longtime southern Alabama soul shouter who got his start working in Muscle Shoals at Fame and has never quit, from his rare northern soul 45s to burned CDRs and finally this album. Cut over three years between his house in Alabama and studios around Chicago, the album is co-produced, mixed, mastered and features playing by Todd Rittmann (US Maple/Dead Rider). Also features southern blues diva Nellie ‘Tiger’ Travis, members of Mucca Pazza, The Drastics, Black Bear Combo and Detholz! as well as various players from Columbus, GA. •The set’s a soul record through and through – not one of these modern funk workouts with an old singer thrown into the mix – but the kind of old school album you’d hear from Malaco or Criteria Studios – particularly during that point when deep soul was growing up in the 70s. Production and arrangements are right on the money. - Dusty Groove •…the single greatest music release of 2012 that you almost certainly have yet to hear. It’s got soul, it’s got funk, and most importantly, it’s got more authenticity than the Alabama Shakes playing on a back porch during a 95-degree day in Jackson, Mississippi. This, friends, is what soul music is supposed to be. - Popmatters •Tracks are relatively stripped down, with lots of great organ, steady rolling grooves and some nice horn playing. Southern fried soul is the recipe, so bits of gospel, blues and country hover around the edges. Jackson’s voice can twist from husky to smooth, and he’s got a nice command of the mid range, and sounds strong - Blurt Magazine •The Alabama Love Man is a trip into the deep south, where there sprawls an optimism of love seemingly uncanny to a generation of tech geeks and window bashers. It captures one of the most soulful voices the world has probably never heard before - Okayplayer •This is a terrific record from start to finish, and one I will play often in the coming weeks. My only criticism of it is that there’s just not enough of it! Still, you can play it twice through in quick succession and not get bored, which is more than can be said for many other contemporary albums - Tony Rouncy, Ace/Kent Records •"An unhinged talent whom latter-day louches like Nick Cave can only hope to imitate" - Ann Powers, LA Times
