"My first Luther Allison record was an impulse buy...saw it in a record bin in a little shop in the Old Port section of Portland, Maine...and it got me. The thumping shuffle of "Backtrack" got me going, with Allison's gravelly vocals and killer slide guitar.
A record that I played a lot, then eventually snagged an import CD in Canada about 11 years ago. Lot of great songs, "Life Is A Bitch" is definitely the blues, subject matter that tells you how it is, and deal with it.
"Parking Lot" was more of a rock song for me, but it was alright, and the import bonus track "Funky T-Shirt" was another good one.
Allison showed throughout his career he could play just about anything, and I think he worked hard to capture his live show on record. Sorry I never got to see him. Whichever version you have of this recording, it's a damn fine one."
This music touch deep down in our soul!!!

"This cd is of course one of the best ways to know and understand why Luther Allison was considered one of the best blues performers.All the interpretations here are true,intense,that seems to become from the deep down of his soul.Luther's linkage with soul music is constantly in the whole album.The guitar riffs,absolutely fantastic!!!This is really a "Serious"work!!! The vocals are strong enough to put all of us in a kind of catarsis,difficult to explain...A masterpiece album,of this authentic bluesman,that need to be knowed better,much better!!! This is music for lovers........,so try "Just Memories",and feel all the sensuality in the air."Parking Lot"is a Rolling Stones revisited tune.Serious,Serious in all the ways!!!"
