DVD-Audio - Classic Collection. Produced by Evans' former employer Ry Cooder, Blues for Thought often sounds like a Cooder album with a great singer. Better yet, Cooder has retained the services of some A-list studio cats, but manages to make them sound like drunken denizens of a Mississippi roadhouse. With the legendary Jim Keltner leading the way with his powerhouse thwacka-thwacka, and Cooder laying down his usual ultra-soulful licks, Evans and company groove mightily though a collection of first-rate material, including blues classics and Evans originals that sound like classics.

Terry Evans' voice and guitar-play on 'Get Your Lies Straight' pays tribute to the blues legends as a whole - and boy does this band swing and rock and roll like the party has just begun. He was not allowed to sing secular music, so he had to sneak out to hear and sing the then forbidden music, rock and roll. And Terry secretly listened to artists like Elmore James, Little Walter, Albert King and . King, to name a few, and decided he wanted to be a soul singer. In the sixties, Terry Evans worked with an a cappella group called The Knights.
