British blues and R&B singer James Hunter performs a remarkably assured selection of self-penned songs on his vintage-sounding PEOPLE GONNA TALK album. With a noteworthy resemblance to the sound of classy 1960s U.K. R&B outfit Georgie Fame & the Blue Flames, Hunter and band journey confidently through cuts like the Sam Cooke-influenced "Mollena," the "Poppa's Got a Brand New Bag"-like "No Smoke Without Fire," and the '50s R&B of "It's Easy to Say." There's a laid-back, gently swinging feel to the album (which was done live in the same London studio the White Stripes used to record ELEPHANT), and Hunter's vocals sound soulful and authentically world-weary.
