This classic blues album has never sounded this alive, warm, articulate, and inviting. QRP has done lovers of the blues - indeed, all of us who love music with real soul and feeling, a tremendous service with this title and its follow-up, "Texas Cannonball". Both could almost bring the dead back to life, such is the passion, feeling, and love of life imbedded in these dead-silent grooves. For the age of the recordings, these re-issues are state-of-the-art examples of how to press first-rate vinyl - one just can't realistically ask for more. Two words: Buy. Now.
