ALBUM REVIEW: PETER WOLF – A CURE FOR LONELINESS

By Joe Greene

By Joe Greene

Background
Peter Wolf is an American rhythm and blues, soul and rock and roll musician, best known as the lead vocalist for the J. Geils Band from 1967 to 1983 and for a successful solo career with writing partner Will Jennings. A Cure For Loneliness is his eighth album.

Strengths
Old fashioned rock songwriting, where the artist bares his soul through confessional lyrics and classic rock ’n’ roll forms. A consistent determination to evoke traditional rock structures, a fairly robust examination of country-folk-blues and rock ’n’ roll. It’s almost as if the 70s never ended.

Highlights
“Rolling On”, “Peace of Mind”, “Fun Awhile”, “Love Stinks (Live)”.

Sounds Like
Van Morrison, Chuck Prophet, Steve Forbert, John Hiatt.

Bottom Line
Rock ’n’ roll diehards will be thoroughly entertained and inspired by this faithful re-creation of 70s music.
