As long as raunchy R&B shouter Andre Williams insists on recording on the fly with pickup garage bands, his albums will continue to sound like weekend brawls.
There's nothing wrong with rawness -- and The Black Godfather is nasty rough -- but if Williams wants to get funky with rock squads like the Countdowns, Dirtbombs, Cheater Slicks, Compulsive Gamblers and the Blues Explosion, they'll need more time together to get their groove on.
Williams is in top hard-shouting form, and grinders like Whip The Booty, I Hate Cha and The Dealer, The Peeler And The Stealer nearly live up to their titles' promise.
Yet they don't come close to the greasy greatness of his later 60s workouts, neatly compiled on the excellent Rib Tips & Pig Snoots album. Since Williams provided the tapes, saucy swingers like Sweet Little Pussy Cat, You Got It And I Want It, and Pig Snoots sound better than the hard-to-find singles.
