Smokin' Joe Kubek Featuring Bnois King: Take Your Best Shot Smokin' Joe is one of the baddest blues guitarists this side of fellow Texan Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Bnois King is one savvy vocalist. Unfortunately, producer Jim Gaines tries to turn Smokin' into a rock star on Take Your Best Shot. Joe's guitar is cranked up too loud and with too much sustain. The intensity of his playing is overwhelmed by the special effects. Even the drums and bass sound distorted. Take Your Best Shot has its enjoyable moments, but I much prefer Kubek's previous CDs.

Title: Take Your Best Shot | Year Released: 1999 | Record Label: Bullseye Records
