"This is a well-polished diamond in the rough. I was hearing it a lot on the radio in about '98 when I was living in my van in Detroit, and spending a lot of my time in blues nightclubs. This is blues, good blues, and from that strange breed of Americans that worship the blues. And it is a great record, especially "Katie Mae","White Lines","Flatfoot Sam" and others. I lost this cd in a move years ago, and the songs are in my head as real juke joint party music even now, hence I am buying it again. So any argument about whether Kortchmar and friends are "authentic" blues or not seems irrelevant in the face of that. Buy it, party, drink, goggle at sexy drunk women, and generally go down in style.
OK, it has been several weeks since I re-purchased this CD, and am now hearing again the songs that weren't coming back to haunt me all the time, as well as the ones that inspired me to get it again. So let it be known that there are a couple weak tunes in there as well. And in spite of "Elvis Slept Here" (just skip it) and maybe one or two others, I still would give it the same rating. Thanks, Amazon, for letting me add this caveat."
Sounds like blues to me...

"This is a very juicy little C D. I've bought a couple of these and given it to friends. The song selection and singing is great! This version of "That Did It" beats the Bobby Blue Bland original in my opinion. Give it a try; the price is right!"
