"This is Robert Cray's first recording. It is also his lone blues roots album. This is his tribute to down home dirty Chicago blues. There are some terrific covers here. In particular Cray does a fine job with Howlin Wolf's: Who's Been Talkin and Willie Dixon's: Too Many Cooks. Unlike his slicker later recordings this is a much more primitive set and frankly he should have stuck with this style. One can only hope that this won't be his last venture in old school blues as there aren't too many blues men left who can play in this style with such ability. This one is well worth getting...Simon"

"This is Robert Cray's early stuff. If you like his more recent albums, like Midnight Stroll and Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, this may come as a bit of surprise. It's got a raw, sometimes unsophisticated sound to it. I think of it as more "bluesy," but that's subjective and I'm no expert on what real blues is. Give it a try, though. I like Don't Be Afraid of the Dark and Strong Persuader is my favorite of all, but this album continually delights me. It reminds me of being on the south side of Chicago eating cheap ribs. And if your girlfriend dumps you, you'll be glad you have "I'm Gonna Forget About You," one of my favorite Cray songs of all."
