"Well Mr. Baldry is selling CD's isn't he. This one has got some really hot licks and vocals. Unfortunatly, it doesn't have the studio version of "Don't try to lay no Boogie Woogie on the King of Rock and Roll". That was the reason I bought the CD. After all, that is the only song some of us old rockers ever heard from Mr Baldry. I still haven't found the studio version. I guess it's toss up. Mr Baldry could sell a lot of CD's with The studio version, or he can promote his new stuff with the tickle on the song list. This CD wasn't quit worth the Bucks, but has some pretty good rifs."

"I have listened to Long John Baldry since I was in high school. Begining with the first time I heard "Don't Lay No Boogie Woogie on the King of Rock and Roll" I was hooked.Those who have heard, and who hasn't, Eric Clapton and Elton John, have already heard Long John Baldry without their knowing it. The influence which Long John Baldry has had on their music comes out clearly in the riffs and the words.Long John's music shows the influence of some of the greatest blues players that have been around. The vocals are fantastic. The blend of the songs on this album will take you all over blues territory along with a little jazz.If you want to go off into blues heaven then I highly recommend this album."
Impersonate Long John and you got a carreer ahead of you

"Not knowing much about Long John Baldry, I took a chance when buying this CD. Here's my tip: make sure you've heard a lot of blues (not just the famous classics) before buying a blues CD. Like so many other Blues favorites Baldry's best songs seem so much un-like his other tunes. They are up-beat and have great sing-along lyrics. However, most of the other stuff on BALDRY'S OUT is repetitive, somewhat off-key, and not catchy at all. It's hard to believe since Baldry's voice is so damn powerful and soul-touching. Maybe that's because most of the songs on the album do what the blues do: utilize lots of instruments and use up a lot of time trying lots of things with them. And that's just not what this non-blues fanatic craves. On the up-side Baldry strikes a cord with "It Ain't Easy," and "Midnight in New Orleans," two amazing hits that make great use of lyrics, backround vocals, and, of course, Baldry's voice. For instance there are the lines- "It Ain't Easy to go ahead when.. you're.. going down!!!", and " Driving down Highway 61, thinking Brother Johnson you are the one..." Overall, these two songs, along with parts of "Stormy Monday Blues," and the infamous 9+ minute "Don't Try To Lay No Boogie Woogie On The King of Rock And Roll" make this CD worthwile. And you gotta love that voice...even when singing German to the Hamburg audience."
