"Natural Light" by Eric Bibb is as strong as his previous efforts and produced once again by his longtime bassist Dave Bronze. Eric's voice and guitar playing shines all over whether he's doing a solo acoustic number as in "Champagne Habits" and the beautiful "Lucky Man' Rag" where he is joined by a wasboard player, or in the full band numbers such as the cover of the sixties Jackie Wilson hit "Higher And Higher". Other favourites include the jazzy "Home Lovin' Man" where Janne Petersson's piano really stands out, the gospel of "Right On Time" and "Tell Riley", a song about Bukka White and his cousin Riley B.(B.) King. There's even a guest appearence by Hubert Sumlin, the late Howlin Wolf’s guitarist, who plays a solo on "Too Much Stuff". Most of the songs are self-penned by Eric Bibb with wise storytelling and witty lyrics but there are some covers tastefully arranged including Randy Newman' ballad "Every Time It Rains".
