Just about everyone knows Darrell Mansfield, and, you guessed, he's still turning out great records after all these years. In fact, he can't be far off a dozen albums and I bet they all sound pretty similar - apart from the classic 'Slowburn' with CR's Glenn Kaiser. With 'Mansfield And Co' it's the tried and tested formula - rock-solid bass and drums backing some decidedly excellent guitar work (courtesy of Craig Erickson) and Mansfield's famous harmonica and powerful, gutsy voice. Personal highlights were "Heavy Load" (top drawer Mansfield) and a storming rendition of "Let's Work Together" which I defy you not to sing along with. Never likely to be a legendary album but unmissable for Mansfield fans - and as good a place as any to start for those wanting to discover the bluesy evangelist for the first time.
