Men Without Women

Remember there are certain records in your life the first time you listen to you don't think much of, and then when you revisit them years later you're absolutely blown away? Little Steven's debut solo album is the one that did it for me. I now understand why this music is so important. I love everything about it -- the genius Stax & Motown-like instrumentation and arrangements, Steve's vocals (definitely inspired by Keith Richards), the classy songwriting, even the kick-ass back album cover of the band. Do yourself a favor and pick this up.
