Chicago Female Blues Never Had It So Good!
Brendan Munoz | 12/03/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Koko and I go way back. If you count the tears and bottles, as well as the smiles and dancing. Koko gets my house a' foot stomping. She makes the juke joint jump alright!
Cause she's been there, done that!
Koko is a Queen. A blues Queen that is. With her deep, throaty and powerful blue voice. My ears and soul are truly moved. As if they just weren't sitting in the right place before she pelted into the room.
Stand out tracks for me are "I'd rather go blind" which is classic pain blues all the way. "Never trust a man" which is the classic done wrong by a man, well her friend was at least. Don't think the album is all downside though. Koko rips up the place and you will get a splinter from foot stomping on the juke joint floor on "If walls could talk."
All in all this is a release to own. The woman to man ratio in blues is astounding. But, Koko on this release proves that she can stand alone and doesn't need a guitar or a man!"
You don't know what you are missing

"Koko starts off with a powerful performance with Something strange is Going on. Then she goes into I'd rather go blind which will take you away for a good five minutes. she also sings Sure had a wonderful time last night with absolutely no growls. The song still sounds good. She also does If walls could talk. Koko puts meaning into her songs.This deserves five stars because this is Koko at her best."
