Great Sound, Excellent 200 Gram Pressing, Robert Cray's BEST Album!
Distinctive, Razor-Sharp Blues Playing from 5 Time Grammy Award Winning Blues Hall of Famer!


One of the most popular and successful blues albums ever released!

200-gram vinyl, pressed at Quality Record Pressings!

Mastered from the original analog tape by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound

Robert Cray is a musician that critics describe as one of the all-time great blues guitarists, and small wonder. No less than Rolling Stone describes his playing as distinctive and razor-sharp. They go on to say that Strong Persuader "introduced a new generation of mainstream rock fans to the language and form of the blues." As much as anyone next to Stevie Ray Vaughan, Cray helped the blues not only survive, but thrive.

Cray, a five-time Grammy winner, originally released Strong Persuader, his fifth studio album, in 1986 — his major label debut. Stinging urban blues by way of Texas and Memphis distinguish Cray's guitar mastery — since the release of Strong Persuader, Cray has gone on to record 15 Billboard-charting studio albums and has written or performed with everyone from Eric Clapton to Stevie Ray Vaughan, from Bonnie Raitt to John Lee Hooker. Inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame at the age of 57, he is one of the youngest living legends to receive the prestigious honor. And although Cray can look back over an astonishing three decade-long career, punctuated by his trademark sound and distinct playing style, he is far too busy moving forward as the amazing journey continues. 2012 saw Robert release his 16th studio album, Nothin' But Love and embark on yet another world tour.

"The set that made Cray a pop star, despite its enduring blues base. Cray's smoldering stance on 'Smoking Gun' and 'Right Next Door' rendered him the first sex symbol to emerge from the blues field in decades, but it was his innovative expansion of the genre itself that makes this album a genuine 1980s classic. 'Nothing but a Woman' boasts an irresistible groove pushed by the Memphis Horns and some metaphorically inspired lyrics, while 'I Wonder' and 'Guess I Showed Her' sizzle with sensuality." - Bill Dahl, allmusic.com
