"This is the first of three wonderful albums which veteran songster Pink Anderson recorded for Bluesville in 1961. The focus on blues here is a little deceptive, as Anderson was far more than just a bluesman. A number of these performances are Blind Boy Fuller numbers learned from recordings, and Anderson is a little stiff rythmically at times. However, three numbers in particular stand out. "Every Day of the Week" is a jaunty number celebrating promiscuity, and given a delightful performance, as is "Meet Me in the Bottom", where Anderson's bass-lines are the epitome of the Piedmont guitar style. The final track "Try Some of That", is an entertaining double - entendre medicine show tune where Anderson plays an inventively varied guitar accompaniment to the increasingly cheeky lyrics, which he delivers with great elan.Anderson was not as nimble on the guitar as he was in his 1950 recordings, but this CD, and all the Bluesville discs, are a great record of the range of repertoire of a first class songster. Strongly recommended for all lovers of East Coast blues."
