Album Notes
"Summertime," Gershwin's classic is performed so subtly that it makes you wonder if it's the same band on the rest of the CD. There is a lot of style in this performance of it, and a lot of deep respect for the song in this classy rendition. The Clarinet solo is by Steve Hooks. Sydney's vocals are smooth and lyrical.

"Bitch With An Attitude," was written by Sydney and music by Luther Tatum, the piano player. With the very first note you know this is a complainin' song. Sydney's strong Blues vocal ability immediately makes itself known. The slide guitar playing is by Mike Parisi.

"Graveyard Blues", is best described as a "Blues Spiritual" lyrics by Sydney, bass playing by Mike Barry.

"Piece Of Crap," Luther wrote this hard pounding piece of music. Sydney wrote these lyrics after seeing inspiration via a broken car being pushed from an intersection she was waiting at. Drum lick by Albert Trepangier.

"The Blues Have Got Me Again," lyrics by Sydney music by Luther Tatum. This is a sad, powerful song with an outstanding melody line reminiscent of something out of New Orleans. Clarinet solo, Steve Hooks. Piano solo Luther Tatum. Sydney shows the power of tone in this number.

"Trouble In Mind," this is "THE" classic Blues song by R. M. Jones. Sydney's version really comes from performing this song. The dynamics in the song and the powerful level that it rises to as well as the sustained size of Sydney's voice makes this one of the CDs strongest Blues numbers. This one comes with goose-bumps.

"Cryin' The Blues," lyrics by Sydney, music by Mike Parisi. Melody line Sydney. This medium tempo 12/8 song is about the resolve to change ones life. Solos: guitar Mike Parisi, alto Steve Hooks.

Nina Simone, being one of Sydney's inspirations, Sydney wanted to include "Nobody's Fault But Mine," this up tempo version continues to demonstrate Sydney's strong vocal ability.

"Fireplace Blues," words by Sydney, music by Luther, is a classic Chicago style slow Blues tune filled with double entendre'. Great guitar work by Mike Parisi. Sydney and Mike take the first solo at the same time working off of each other. The second solo is by Steve Hooks on tenor blowing the roof off with it.

"Ain't As Bad As You Think," is a New Orleans style romp, with music by Luther and words by Sydney. This one is about one of Sydney's "EX-Old Men," and what she thinks of him. Solos are by Steve Hooks on clarinet and Luther on piano.

The eleventh and last song on this CD is a remake of one of the songs from the experimental cassette, "Coffee House Blues" that Sydney and Kevin first started BWR & P with. Titled, "You Won't Do Right," Sydney bashes one more of her men in this up tempo number. Solo by Mike on guitar.

Overall, "Goin Home," presents itself as an outstanding Blues CD with a wide variety of Blues grooves, tempos and of course Sydney's extraordinary voice and singing ability.
