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. This one is a must-have simply for "Sadie" which is one of HDT's few self-penned originals. The raw grit, emotion and burn he puts into "Sadie", "See Me In The Evening" and others in this set are indescribably delicious... One spin & you'll be hooked on the Dog, so just get it!!!

"I can't tell you how strongly I feel about this album. This is awesome! This is one of the more outstanding examples of the "boogie" blues style. My favorite tracks are "You Can't Sit Down," and "Sadie" although its a little like selecting favorites among your children...ultimately, you love them all very much. This makes a tremendous addition to any blues collection."

"Hound Dog Taylor was born polydactyly - he had six fingers on both hands. One night in a drunken impulse, he cut off the extra digit on his strumming hand with a razor blade while leaving his fretboard hand with all six. For that reason alone, Hound Dog Taylor is the baddest MF to live in Chicago since Al Capone. While "Scareface" had machine guns to fire off in the streets of The Windy City, old "Eleven-Fingers" had his raw voice, gritty guitar, punk boogie, and sad stories to dredge up from the back alley dumpsters of Chi-town.
