Aside from the two hits and an interesting reimagining of John Fogerty's "Born on the Bayou," there just isn't much to write home about here, although Wilson's singing is always arresting, even if the songs seem to unravel almost before they can get off the ground. Wilson's earlier 1960s material for Johnny Rivers' Soul City imprint has more life to it, but there isn't a collection on the market that combines both eras, which is a shame, since the two phases actually balance nicely.
