After picking up Tony Troutman's Your Man Is Home Tonight album a few months ago on a trip through Atlanta, I sat on it for a while without taking the time to give it a spin. Records can pile up pretty fast around here, and with life getting hectic, it can become challenging to kick back and take the time to absorb a whole album. While I guessed the record would be a tepid affair based on price in an established record spot and budget cover, I hoped that by picking something up from an unfamiliar artist on an unfamiliar label, I could tap into a new groove that could steer my interests into uncharted territories. There are a few good cuts on the album, and for the price I paid, I'm glad to have them! I found something honest and endearing in Tony's effortless storytelling and reserved funk-boogie and would be interested to know more about his history. Here are a few of the stronger cuts "Love Is Here", "Your Man Is Home Tonight", and "Do It Right"... give 'em a listen and let me know what you think!
