After spending several years performing in local Memphis clubs, Ollie Nightingale was given the opportunity to return the recording studio to cut his first full-length solo album. The resulting record, I'll Drink Your Bathwater, Baby, may have had an ugly title, but the record itself was an excellent slice of contemporary soul-blues. Nightingale tears through the selection of originals and covers with true passion, elevating the average songs to something quite passionate and inspired. It's an excellent way to revive his recording career. ~ Thom Owens
