Daddy B. Nice notes:

Gentry-Jones is Nil Jones and Tony Gentry. They first surfaced with their line-dance club favorite with Mr. Sam (Sam Fallie), "Roll It, Roll It". Right now there’s only one song from this set that I’m interested in playing, “Why Me?”, the cover of Reggie P.’s classic single. The Gentry-Jones version barely missed being the #1 Single of the Month in July…

…2. "Why Me?"-----Gentry-Jones

The first things you notice about this long-overdue cover of the late Reggie P.'s classic "Why Me" are the flaws: the inferior vocals (and "inferior" to Reggie P. leaves a lot of room to be soulful), the distortion caused by the amplified bass and percussion. And yet this song--all six minutes of it--just keeps growing on you. It rocks, and has the potential to be bigger than "Roll It, Roll It," and a classic in its own right.

...Since that write-up a month ago, the song has only gone up in my estimation. I now love the Tony Gentry lead vocal, and even the realistic (street-wise) mumblings of Nil Jones. The rhythm track is simply over-powering, and I have never tired of it, as I feared I might.
