"I ran across Catfish Hodge at a local club awhile back and he put on an outstanding one-man show. You could tell this blues man was feeling every note he played and every word he sang. As the show went on it became very evident that he was telling you the story of his life with each original song. As soon as I got home from the show I bought this CD. It was originally released in 1979 and also has 6 bonus tracks from an earlier released CD: BOUT WITH THE BLUES. The CD is hard hitting and full of all the emotion of his live show. The track "Cold, Cold" will freeze your blood. I played it over and over, increasing the volume a little louder each time! The last song, "Can I Go Home" seems to sum up much of the sadness Catfish has felt in his life, and talked about at the show. Many of the tracks also have a 70's funky blues sound that is rather interesting and reminds me of R.L. Burnside's recent releases. I am surprised that more blues lovers are not talking about Catfish Hodge."
