  • British blues and R&B singer James Hunter performs a remarkably assured selection of self-penned songs on his vintage-sounding PEOPLE GONNA TALK album. With a noteworthy resemblance to the sound of classy 1960s U.K. R&B outfit Georgie Fame & the Blue Flames, Hunter and band journey confidently through cuts like the Sam Cooke-influenced "Mollena," the "Poppa's Got a Brand New Bag"-like "No Smoke Without Fire," and the '50s R&B of "It's Easy to Say." There's a laid-back, gently swinging feel to the album (which was done live in the same London studio the White Stripes used to record ELEPHANT), and Hunter's vocals sound soulful and authentically world-weary.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.62) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "James Hunter has long been championed by no less an R&B gatekeeper than Van Morrison, and one listen to these fourteen Hunter-penned gems will incite a rush to second that endorsement."

Q (p.116) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Split between hip shakers and the slow and soulful, this is ripe for appreciation by the casual listener as well as old soul fans."

Down Beat (p.74) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Hunter phrases leisurely, staying quietly charismatic over ska or soul-time rhythms ideal for finger-snapping."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.99) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Rooted in the great tradition, but with a clear identity all its own, PEOPLE GONNA TALK is a finely crafted showcase for that remarkable voice."
