  Don Nix: Goin' Down: The Songs of Don Nix - PopMatters Music Review
Don Nix & Friends were goin' down in my player and the CD hasn't seen the light of day since.
Don Nix, one of the original proto-type models and distinctive maker of a unique genre, has re-emerged and given his collection of hits a completely different flavor.
As soon as Nix began singing "ooh-ooh-ooh-oohs" across the song's swaying bridge, I began feeling a little funny, and figured I had swallowed a time capsule and was exhibiting almost indescribable but probably permanent side effects.

Don isn’t that thrilled with what he received and Kenny beats him to the punch, apologizing for “not hearing it.” Don assures him that he can use it and he is happy, no doubt relying on his own expert ear and Matt’s engineer skills to cull what he needs.
Don then looks at me and asks, “Can you play harmonica tonight?” I mumble, “Sure, if you really need one.” It seems that the harmonica player Don hired has had trouble getting to the studio and I’m to fill in.

And let me tell you this - if you want to hear a song sung and played with all its originally imagined "sound" intact, you don't want to miss this new release by an otherwise overlooked but immensely worthy musician.
And I couldn't end without giving a strong shot of credit to guests Bonnie Bramlett (for her wonderfully throaty lead vocal contributions to "Same Old Blues" and "Like A Road Leading Home") and John Mayall (for his always superb harp playing, this time on "Going Back to luka" and "Everybody Wants to go to Heaven").
One can only hope that Nix (and all his friends, of course) will continue the fine work as evidenced - no pun intended - here.
