A Great Mix of Blues From Chicago to Mississippi
Michael Strom | Chicago, IL USA | 01/13/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In just nine songs, this disc covers an astounding range of blues styles, and delivers the best in all of them. The classic Chicago blues of Little Walter & Willie Dixon are well served by great covers of Boom Boom (Out Go The Lights) & 29 Ways. Georgia Rag is an original that could pass for classic acoustic work by Blind Boy Fuller or Pink Anderson. They hit New Orleans big time with Bald-head Rhumba Boogie (a tribute to Professor Longhair) & Dr. John's Lord Pity Us All. The song You Done Tore Your Playhouse Down is a slow-but-stomping 12-bar that B.B. King really should have covered by now, with riotous lyrics ("Your eyeballs look like a road map. They're looking 2 different ways. You got your teeth in one hand & your wig in the other -- & you haven't looked this good in days"). Barefoot Rock & The Boogie Walk are self-explanatory, while Ranky Tanky defies categories.

Great songs, great playing & singing, & a good time to be had by all concerned.
I finally found this CD

"Many years ago I had a copy of the original LP, including the flour sack it came in! I don't know what happened to the record, but when I found this CD I had to have it. Great blues, great harp, you'll love it. Richard Newell (King Biscuit Boy) has never been truly given his due as a musician, and I'll wager you will agree after listening to this CD."
