Beautiful blues performances
Joe Sixpack -- | Middle America | 01/27/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sweet acoustic blues, from sessions recorded back in 1972-74... It honestly doesn't get much better than this! Plenty of familiar old songs, but all presented in a distinctive, captivating personal style. Highly recommended."
More great music from Shines
"Ian Herrick" | San Jose, CA | 07/27/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Although I find some of the tracks on here lacking in the energy of similar performances on other discs (particularly his version of "Terraplane," "Delta Pines," and "Honeybee." The first two are much better represented by his work on the "Hey-Ba-ba-re-bop" album -- although the original JOB recording of "Delta Pines" is great too, and "Honeybee" by his recording on the Wolf label) this is still some great music. I particularly enjoyed the last song, "Jim string Blues". This whole CD is Shines to the teeth: wonderful polyrhythms, stomping bass, keening slide, and Shine's great subtle yet dynamic vocals."
Real Stuff

"Pick this one up right away, to hear country acoustic blues the way it was meant to be played. Several great things about this particular recording: great fidelity, both straight acoustic and a lot of brilliant slide playing, features Johnny only--voice and guitar. This is a guy who ran with Robert Johnson, folks. And I would have to say he is better than Robert in terms of singing and playing. His voice is so powerful and moving, and his guitar work is second to none."
