Downhome authenticity rarely found in today's blues
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you are the type of blues enthusiast that is tired of the deluge of uninspired and unoriginal contemporary blues albums that have flooded the market in the last five years then this will be a breath of fresh air. The content of this album ranges from back-porch guitar boogies to barrelhouse piano instrumentals and from free-form gospel improvisations to electric slide guitar workouts. The performers:R.L. Burnside,Pinetop Perkins, Eddie Cusic, Robert Curtis Smith and Boogaloo Ames are all Mississippi natives that were recorded in their natural elements-front porches, living rooms, and church pues in both the woods of Mississippi and the streets of Chicago. This release is the type that goes unrecognized upon release, but resurfaces years down the line as a true classic of the genre. If you are looking for the real deal, smothered in down-home authenticity and R&B grit, then this is the record to get."
