"This collection of masterpieces covers the full range of blues styles and offers something special for every blues enthusiast. Some of the most gripping, heart wrenching blues wizzardry that you will hear anywhere is on this album. Johnny proves again and again why he is the most accomplished electric blues guitar player that has ever lived."
Johnny breaks the door down!

"1991 wasn't a really good year for blues but this album as well as John Lee Hookers "The Healer" continued to burn the flame during that dark peroid.
EVERY track on this one is totally fabulous...Johnnys voice is at its peak, his guitar work is incendiary and the greatest thing about this album is the feeling throughout that Johnny and his band ( who are also 100% superb!) are really enjoying every moment of it.
Billy Branchs harp work is stunning and Dr. Johns piano is practically in flames, especially on that last track " You Lie Too Much" (c.d version only/bonus track).
This c.d goes so well together with Johnnys two previous c.ds " Guitar Slinger" and the merciless "Third Degree"...they all have the same very high level of energy."
Johnny rocks as always

"Right after I played this for the first time, the fire alarm in our building went off. I think it was just coincidence, but it was appropriate, because Johnny smokes through the entire CD.It took a couple listens before I got used to his singing, which seems smoother than on his other CDs. I like the more tortured way he sings.Standout cuts: Illustrated Man, title cut, any of the four with Dr. John on piano. Johnny Winter fans won't be disappointed."
