This is an amazing album.
— LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON
…Tight urgency that is the foundation of the entire album, driving the funky guitar and bass lines through a brilliant reinvention of the M.G.’s soul chemistry, ramped up for the 21st century.
— MOJO
After all these years, he remains so soulful, and so good.
— NPR
A showcase for Jones’ ever-sinuous way around his Hammond B-3, which sings, purrs, moans and shouts with often near-human expressivity, under his skilled touch.
— LOS ANGELES TIMES
Transports listeners to the ’60s heyday of Stax, where [Jones] and the MGs defined soul music.
— USA TODAY
Joyous a satisfying return to Booker T.’s classic instrumental soul and funk.
— BOSTON GLOBE
The Road From Memphis shifts to funk and R&B, with Philly’s own the Roots as his backing band. It’s a perfect pairing stellar.
— PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER
The funk here is deep and solid. The punishingly unpredictable twists and turns all manage to punch your gut with a groove.
