"If you're looking at this CD, you're probably a Bugs fan and you know what a stellar guitar player he is. This is a reissue of his first album (circa 1980). It's full of good songs and excellent playing and does not sound dated. Plus it has the ubiquitous Bugs' audio liner notes. Remember folks, Bugs is better than drugs. Buy this one and go see Bugs when he hits your town!"
