CD reissue. Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark is a solid release from the Robert Cray Band. The songs are consistently strong and Robert Cray is at the top of his game, his smooth vocals, stinging guitar work and clever songwriting put him on par with today's best modern, electrified blues. The band does not often get the credit they so duly deserve, as Richard Cousins (bass), Peter Boe (keyboards) and David Olson (drums) do an excellent job of accompanying Cray on these tunes. The horns are supplied by the Memphis Horns and Wayne Jackson. There's a guest appearance by David Sanborn playing the saxophone on 'Acting This Way'.
