This 1973 release features songs that span Bukka White's career including some of his last recordings. At the time, White played on Beale Street in Mississippi regularly, and his chops are are dead on and his feel simply grooves. His improvisational vocal style along with his driving playing make this record a final Memphis party and show why he was one of the Kings of the Blues.

"Riding the folk-blues popularity wave in the 1960s, these early '70s recordings find the storyteller/singer still in his prime. Bukka White conjures up in the studio the essence of the revival sound: A man, a guitar, and an authentic delivery. Recorded just a few years before White's 1977 death, this album of Bukka White solos with guitar reaches back into the catalog that made even a large figure in the pre-World War II blues. Among these songs is 'Sic 'Em Dogs On,' which, like most of the tracks, features the ex-boxer percussively playing with the force on his guitar that made him switch from wooden-body guitars to the more durable steel-bodied models. The production is clear vocally, through somewhat thin in the guitar area, and the accompanying notes are detailed." — All Music Guide
