Living Blues - 5-6/99, pp.80-1
"...combine guitar heavy blues/rock with vocals and grooves sometimes reminiscent of classic Stax Records soul...RIGHT AS RAIN is an album with great crossover ambitions....crank it up [and] it's almost impossible to keep your foot from tapping."

Bay Area bluesman Tommy Castro's fourth release on Blind Pig Records follows the same formula for success as his previous CAN'T KEEP A GOOD MAN DOWN. Over the years, Castro's sizzling live performances have made him a staple of the blues circuit along the California coast.
Packed with Memphis-style horns, RIGHT AS RAIN features the tasty session work of Dr. John on two tracks, as well as a terrific duet with Delbert McClinton on the R&B cooker "Don't Turn Your Heater Down." As a singer, Castro is part shouter, part crooner, with a style suggestive of Jeff Healey. His immaculate, accomplished guitar playing has been widely praised, drawing comparisons to Stevie Ray Vaughn and Duane Allman.
