"I just got Pure Pleasure's reissue of Last Night's Dream (PP 7-63212), a Johnny Shines LP I've wowed show crowds with for years. My American Blue Horizon edition is good, but this Pallas pressing, cut by Ray Staff from the original analog tape, is much, much better." - Michael Fremer, Stereophile, June 2005

Another wonderful production from Mike Vernon and released on his Blue Horizon label. Engineered and recorded in 1968 by Malcolm Chisholm at the Chess Records Ter-Mar studios in Chicago, the same studio where the audiophile classic Muddy Waters - Folk Singer was recorded. Johnny Shines is at the height of his skills and is joined by the cream of the Chicago blues musicians of the day - guys like Otis Spann on piano, Big Walter Horton on harp, Willie Dixon on bass and Clifton James on drums. Killer sound!

"Johnny Shines is the ultimate Delta bluesman, combining the classic styles he learned as a youth into a very personal style, fluent, creative and forcefully talented as both a singer and guitarist." - Jim DeKoester

"A forceful explosive blues singer whose strong, vibrato laden voice possesses a range and sensitivity which is rivaled by few other bluesmen." - Peter Guralnick

Stereophile magazine was correct; this is one of the best engineered recordings I've ever listened to and converts a raunchy, soulfull blues session into something that is almost a sacred listening experience.
