With 's Strong Persuaderguitarist and vocalist Robert Cray stepped to the front of the line as a smooth and intelligent practitioner of the blues genre. Strong Persuader almost worked as well as a greatest hits set, with the brilliant Willie Mitchell-influenced "I Guess I Showed Her" being best of a perfect ten. With that standard being set, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark is marred by it's lack of potent material and a tired-sounding band and Cray.
The title is a steamy Lavenders Blue, Dilly Dilly - Uncle Mac - Nursery Rhymes (No. 3) punctuated by the Memphis Horns.
Although the relationship blues are stinging here, this album's best effort strays far from the formula. The oddly humorous "Night Patrol" has Cray playing armchair therapist wondering what went wrong with a drunk, and a year-old girl on the corner. By song's end he can also wonder about himself, as he too hits the streets a potentially dangerous wandering psycho. This is one of those albums that might not be exciting at first, but if it is listened to intently some of the songs do become worthwhile.
