Synopsis

Amazon.com
He'll always be the king of boogie-woogie, but this class package is just what's needed to establish Long John Baldry as a bluesman who only gets better with age. Aside from a few electric guitar runs by Papa John King and (on the title track) Colin James, Baldry is showcased in elegant, traditionally oriented settings that highlight his growling vocals and great taste in repertoire (Leroy Carr's sultry "Midnight Hour Blues," King's spooky "You're the One"). --Jeff Bateman

Infectious
andrew reed | HASTINGS, HAWKES BAY New Zealand | 07/03/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"From the very first track you know you have a winner ,what other artist gives such a infectious chuckle to the swing of sax and piano .With vocals a hundred years old and a rhythm section straight out of saturday night .The c.d is littered with class acts from papa john kings beautiful slide shimmering through out ,colin james blasting on the title track and the lovely kathi mcdonalds vocals lighting up the night . Allways the perfect gentleman long john weaves in and out of the guests contributions as the perfect foil to their talents lifting them to new heights To cap it all off there is 23 minutes of a history of british blues from one who was there ,not looking in from the outside If you like this as much as me you must buy On Stage Tonight to complement this"
