"This a great intrduction to what is sometimes called "white country blues". Hutchison was an incredible talent when allowed to showcase his blues leanings. Unfortunately he had to record what the labels thought would sell so some of the tracks on this disc are not what one would call traditional blues. That should not stand in your way of checking him out. Just listen to "Logan County Blues" or "Train That Carried My Girl From Town". Wonderful slide work is all over this disc. I will warn you that on a small number of tracks the sound quality is somewhat poor but overall that is not a problem For an even better intro to this genre of music, pick up Columbias "White Country Blues: A Lighter Shade Of Blue". This is a fantastic 2-cd set featuring a wide variety of artists (including Hutchison). This disc opens with a devastating instrumental version of KC Blues. Snatch it up!!"
