CD Reviews

Lotsa harp & vintage old-style blues vocals
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Despite's claim to the contrary, this CD has been re-issued....... it's been getting heavy airplay on blues radio programs around the country since it's re-issue, August 11, 1998. and is now nationally distributed by M.S. Distributing Company. Like the other two Mojo Buford titles on Blue Loon, it's also handled by most one-stops, so it's only a matter of time before the folks at Amazon catch on.This disc features classic, Muddy Waters-approved vintage Chicago-style blues. Heavy on the harmonica, seasoned with tasty dashes of piano and fat-bodied guitar, it has the sort of sound which screams "Chicago - 1950's", which it fitting. Among the many harmonica players in Muddy's band over the years, Mojo stands alone as the only one to have toured with Muddy in the 1950's, 60's, 70's, and 80's.Recorded in analog, without benefit of overdubs or gimmicks, this is close as you'll get to a truly live recording. Mojo is backed by members of Rockin' Daddy & the Rough Cuts (Dan Schwalbe - guitar, Jack Taylor - bass, and Greg Shuck - drums) as well as one-handed blues pianist Mike "the Hook" Deutsch, and Curtis Blake on second harp.On several tracks, this line-up is joined by Teddy Morgan on second guitar and R.J. Mischo and third harp. The effect is a supurb tappestry of interwoven melodies, each delightfully adding to the thick ensemble sound. Highly recommended for knowledgable blues aficiandos. Mojo's original lyrics will crack you up, and the musicianship is outstanding. Worth looking for!"
