doug's notes:
at the time this cd was recorded, i was mostly known for playing solo on bourbon street; so, it was a shock for some people to hear me doing this music: hard bluesy techno-ish rock with a nasty edge... but, i'd always done rock and funk before i went solo. 
in the mid to late 70s i was in 'razin' cain' - a very high-energy new orleans funky rock band doing all original music [i wrote the majority of the material]- AND in the late 80s i had 'doug duffey/street level/new orleans' a techno-voodoo-euro-gumbo-funk-rock-dance tribe [doing my original music] -so... for me, the music on this cd was NOT out of character. au contraire. 
i was in serious "rock mode" at the time, and i wanted a cd [something that went a little deeper lyrically and musically than the standard r&b fare] that showed another side of Nawlins life... and this cd DOES that! the music may sound a bit european, but the lyrics are straight outa' the quarter [especially "call me up", "dangerous love", & "muscle of love"] ... the songs definitely live up to the title!
