"You can't listen to Lil' Ed while standing still. He really gets you moving. Raucous songs sung with feeling and an abundant amount of energy. Sizzling slide guitar backed with a rythm section that would put the Rolling Stones to shame."
PARTY TIME !

"True to the spirit of Alligator Records, this can best be described as "houserockin' blues". Three hours and fifteen minutes, according to the liner-notes that's all it took Lil' Ed Williams and his Blues Imperials to record their debut album virtually live in the studio. In fact, in that short period of time, they managed to record 30 tunes in all, of which 10 show up on this CD. There's nothing slick about this type of music, it's rough-and-tumble jumpy blues, dominated by Lil' Ed Williams' scorching slide guitar. This band had been playing together for ten years when this album was recorded, so they have a great rapport. Their very first visit to a recording studio was really only meant to cut a couple of tracks for an anthology of up-and-coming Chicago blues bands, but try stopping these guys ! Happy, energetic, raw ... It's hard to exactly pin down the mood of this music. Perhaps the term "party music" sums it all up. This band must be great to hear live, but this album serves as a great introduction !"
