The Bo-Keys carry the torch for Memphis soul with surprising success. The record scans like a collection of vintage Stax singles, combining funky instrumentals like the lead track, “Hi Roller” (the name says a lot), and powerful performances by legendary vocalists William Bell, Percy Wiggins, Charlie Musselwhite, and Otis Clay. There’s also a spoken vocal (on “Work That Sucker”) by former Isaac Hayes guitarist Charles “Skip” Pitts, who’s now a member of this superb retro group.
