For many years Long John Hunter played in clubs without much attention, but that time sweating it out in roadhouses has paid off. During that time, he developed a gutsy, forceful technique that was fully evident on his belated 1993 debut, Ride With Me. Although his second album, Border Town Legend, is a slicker, more accessible effort, Hunter hasn’t lost any of his spicy, distinctive flavor. Working with a horn section, he still manages to make himself the most powerful element on the record — both his guitar playing and his heated vocals ensure that. Furthermore, Hunter’s songwriting is growing stronger. Out of the nine songs he has written or co-written for the album, he has contributed some first-rate tunes that might not stretch beyond generic conventions, but still are mighty fine.
