For Chicago-style slide-guitar blues on the jagged edge, Hound Dog Taylor is your man... He can whip up some scalding hot slide on one number then tone it down to some smooth, sweet fills on the next or sometimes even in the same song. His partner in steel, Brewer Phillips keeps the rhythm going along with the crash!, boom!, bang! of Ted Harvey's drumset. Ragged & Right & top-shelf entertainment like no other...

Rough but fun
Docendo Discimus | Vita scholae | 09/28/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

""When I die", Hound Dog Taylor is reported to have said, "people are gonna say 'he couldn't play s**t, but he sure made it sound good'!"
Well, truth be told, Theodore Roosevelt Taylor wasn't the most subtle or technically varied slide guitarist, but he and his Houserockers did indeed make it sound good.

The production on this their first record leaves a lot to be desired (the drums are mixed way too far into the background, and there are times when you can barely hear Brewer Phillips' second guitar), but having Hound Dog Taylor's crunchy, fuzzy lead guitar right up front isn't too bad, and he rocks on the funky "It's Alright", the fiery instrumental "Walking The Ceiling", and a raw, sloppy take on Tampa Red's "It Hurts Me Too".

Other highlights include the slow blues "Held My Baby Last Night", and Hound Dog Taylor's best song, the superbly groovy, up-tempo boogie of "Give Me Back My Wig" (later covered by Stevie Ray Vaughan among others).
Incredibly unsubtle and often unvaried, and too many mediocre instrumental pieces, too, but it's good fun all the same.
3 1/2 stars."
Seminal,essential......historical at all!

"This album captures the simplicity of the seminal blues like no other.Bruce Iglauer have done his best choice,at the beginning of the Alligator's Records.Houd Dog Taylor,with this work was really at an inspirated time,and his slideway to play was full of talent,an overdose of great blues! This was the first album of Alligator's,and it's fundamental for those that really want to start a collection of blues rarities! Hound Dog Taylor was among that blues artists,Iglauer most admired and really wanted to record,after he lefted Bob Koester's Delmark Records! Of course,seminal,essential...historical album!"
