Version 1 of the JM Band and the BEST!
oldrattler | 12/13/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"John Mooney is from my hometown, Rochester, NY. He left for the greener blues pastures (couldn't resist that!) of Louisiana a few years back, but not before creating a huge entourage of fans who followed him to every bar he played. I was fortunate enough to have danced away the spring of '78 to the very tunes on this CD at places like the Crazy Horse Saloon and Orange Inn . Ahhh, I digress into melancholy; enough of that.This is the old style John Mooney: finger-picking National steel with pickups, Son House (his mentor) stuff. A couple of the sidemen are also worth mention: the astounding acoustic bass is played by Brian Williams who is still on the local scene with Bobby Henrie and the Goners and the unbelievable acoustic piano is played by Bob Cooper whose whereabouts is unknown (sadly missed).When John came back from Louisiana for a visiting gig, he had gone electric, turned a blues corner so to speak. That music is also great, but this album is the real deal, the John Mooney Band that created memories that hundreds of now middle-aged sonsofbitches like me will take to their graves as bright lights of a bygone era.Move the furniture out the way, throw a bucket of ice on a case of beer, and call in the neighbors: you gonna love this one!"
What are you waitin' for?

"John Mooney is the most talented and creative blues guitarist on the scene today. Period. If you really love the blues then run (don't walk) to buy this album. Listen to it, and once you've picked yourself up off the floor, buy the rest of Mooney's albums--what are you waitin' for?"
