A gem from the 1980's-- not to be missed
Frederick Rudofsky | East Greenbush, NY USA | 07/10/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A true legend in the Delta, Big Jack has gained national attention in the last decade. This solo debut is from 1987 is tremendous-- he's got a booming yet warm voice like Albert King and a ferocious lead/rhythm guitar approach that just astounds. The set list is a mix of originals and covers (even one by Bob Wills-- Big Jack counts country music has a key influence in his music) and the tour de force rendition of "Catfish Blues" is unforgettable. With Frank Frost on piano from the Jelly Roll Kings, this album is a must for initiates to Big Jack or fans who only know his '90's releases."
