Long-standing gospel singer Lewis returns on new label Wheelstown with two big-vision slabs of soul. "The Bottle" takes Gil Scott Heron to more upbeat, technicolour places while Pat's delivery retains the original sobriety and sentiment. "One Foot Before The Other" snaps us back to the Motown legacy with big backing harmonies, full orchestration and a subtle-but-present northern soul stomp. Genuine.
