Synopsis

Amazon.com
Let's just say that the songwriting of this venerable Chicago singer-guitarist--papa to the young guns who lead the Kinsey Report band--doesn't measure up to his intentions. Despite its title, this 1993 effort is a tribute to Kinsey's role model Muddy Waters. And luckily most of the tunes are classics from Waters ("Mannish Boy," "Got My Mojo Workin'," "Walking Through the Park"), Sonny Boy Williamson ("Nine Below Zero"), and others. The expert support includes Buddy Guy and Big Daddy's son Donald on guitar; harpmen James Cotton, Sugar Blue, and Billy Branch; piano legend Pinetop Perkins; and Lucky Peterson on organ. So the playing is every bit as Delta-authentic as Kinsey himself, whose deep Mississippi-accented voice is a glorious time machine that transports us back to the era of the Saturday night fish fry. --Ted Drozdowski

I am the Blues
M. Zucker | San Bruno Ca. | 03/10/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Disappointed in the mix on this live performance . Many lead instruments are hard to hear. Lots of drum rhythms and vocals. Guitar, bass and piano are not well-balanced.
Talking to audience during the performance is part of the CD, which gets old once you've heard the chatting .
Recommend going to studio work with better mix on his other CDs."
