Like his previous two efforts for Verve, These Blues
and Honey Dripper, So Goes Love
doesn't really offer anything new from Charles Brown
, but that' hardly a bad thing. Again, he serves up a collection of appealing, laidback blues that often drifts into jazz territory. The repertoire is a tad too predictable ("Stormy Monday," "Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child"), but the performances are so lovely that there's no reason to complain. So Goes Love
is hardly the first album to pick up if you're beginning a Brown
collection, but once you've been introduced to his charms, it's quite welcome.
