"Story telling with a Memphis groove" is how Lloyd Jones describes his soulful and intelligent fusion of funk, blues and r&b. After honing his skills with the likes of Charlie Musselwhite, Robert Cray, Dr. John, Bonnie Raitt and a host of other music legends, the guitarist formed the Lloyd Jones Struggle in 1985 as a vehicle for his prolific songwriting. They have since become a mainstay on the West Coast circuit. Love Gotcha presents Lloyd's writing at its trenchant best - check out the rueful "Treat Me Like the Dog I Am" and "Young Girls," his tribute to the charms of the mature woman. Lloyd's tasty guitar work throughout is complemented by some of the funkiest horn-rhythm-organ arrangements around.

"Another consummate guitarist-singer-songwriter is Lloyd Jones, who puts it all together in fine fashion on Love Gotcha (Blind Pig 5057; 42:49). A raspy-voiced soul man with an impeccable sense of time and a killer instinct on guitar, Lloyd swings and wails on driving shuffles like 'I Declare' and 'Treat Me Like the Dog I Am.' He rocks with authority on the revved-up 'Fools Gold' and the Sonny Terry-Brownie McGhee vehicle 'Ride and Roll,' featuring husky vocal backing from Terry Evans. Jones pays a fitting homage to funk icon James Brown on 'Nickels and Dimes' and smolders on an infectious Memphis-styled groove on the title track. Guitaristically, he passes the slow blues test on 'Old News' and picks out some Piedmont stylings on the unaccompanied 'Big 01' Shirt.' This talented journeyman has been carrying the blues torch since the early '70s and is well deserving of wider recognition." - Jazz Times
