Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

For his first album for Telarc, Jimmy Thackery -- backed by his band, the Drivers -- has come up with a near-tribute album to Eddie Hinton, covering eight of his songs on this 11-track set while offering three originals that illustrate the depth of his debt and love for the underappreciated singer/songwriter.

Hinton was one of the leading white Southern soul singer/songwriters of the '70s, '80s, and '90s, and Thackery learned a lot from him -- especially how R&B, blues, and rock could be seamlessly fused and that roots are as important as strong songwriting. Thackery turns up the volume a little bit more and rocks it hard, not just here but overall, but he can also convincingly deliver a slow-burner like "It's All Wrong but It's All Right," which is what makes We Got It so satisfying -- not just as a testament to Hinton, but as a strong Thackery record. It's a great way to begin his association with Telarc.
