A true original, Louisiana Red shines in his first solo, all-accoustic album. Red (nee Iverson Minter) combines the rawboned intensity of John Lee Hooker with the slide guitar mastery of his cousin, Earl Hooker — with tastes of Muddy Waters and J. B. Hutto.

Originally released in 1975, at the time this album was recorded, Red was a protégé of the Blue Labor/Labor recording empire, which was actually two guys, Kent Cooper and jazz arranger and composer Heiner Stadler. Cooper's involvement with Red led, as in many cases of blues producers and their clients, to co-authorship on some of the songs recorded. Cooper and Stadler regarded Red as an artist cut from the same cloth as John Lee Hooker or Lightning Hopkins, and of the same quality — meaning an intense, mood-setter of a bluesman with a sizzling improvisatory style.
