"This album from the late 60's features eddie Boyd backed by some of the best British blues musicians of the time. Peter Green and Tony McPhee on guitar;John Mayall on harp;John McVie on bass; and Ansley Dunbar on the drums.Basically the Mayall band of the time. Boyd later went on to cut some tunes with Fleetwood Mac. A solid set of chicago blues!"

"Not as good as his Blue Horizon output. You wouldn't even know Peter Green attended the sessions, if the sleeve didn't mention him. I bought this to complete my Peter Green collection & have barely played it. You have to be in the mood for piano music. Some songs feature Eddie only. Would recommend trying the Complete Blue Horizon Sessions of both Eddie Boyd & Otis Spann first."
