A Great Album

"I know his voice has been slammed, the production has been slammed, and just about every other nitpicky thing you can think of has been said about this album..... I don't care. This is one of my all time favorite albums....EVER!!
His voice is not for everyone, but if you like the hoodoo, voodoo, low rumbling , primal growl of a man made of mud, this album is for you.
The guy used to play a '58 Gibson Jumbo with a single coil pickup in the soundhole, it sounded awesome.
He played with heart and conviction. There's not a bum cut on any of his three releases, but since this was the first I bought, it's my favorite.I saw him open for Buddy Guy when this album was released. I had never heard of him before, but the next day I went to every record store in two towns trying to find this album. No one had it in stock because everyone else who was at the show had beaten me to the store and bought the last copies. So, critics be darned, just buy the album already......."
Buy this CD and buy it NOW!

"Way back just after this CD was released, I turned up with my girlfriend at Glasgow's Royal Concert Hall to see Buddy Guy over in Scotland on tour. Well we saw Buddy and he was OK but on the trip home all my girlfriend and I could talk about was the support act;Mr John Campbell. He remains to this day the only support act I've seen in this country who had to come back to the stage and do an encore. Not because he expected to but because of the prolonged noise from the crowd at the end of his set. This album is, I believe, the best of the 3 although Howlin' Mercy runs it close. The title track makes me want to play air guitar every time I hear it (yes I know, sad) and I defy anybody to sit still during 'I couldn't do nothin'' My favourite track though is Wild Streak. Play it loud in the car on your way to work and you're set for the day. I can honestly say that there isn't a bad track on the CD. If aliens were to land on Earth and ask me to give them one Blues CD it would have to be this one. Had John Campbell not died tragically soon after Howlin Mercy was released he would have gone on to be a huge Blues star. I count myself lucky to have seen his live show. Buy this album now and stop thinking about it. Like one of the other reviewers says. Play it LOUD and play it in the dark. Enjoy!"
One of my all time favorites

"Having read some of the other reviews here I am not sure about all of the controversy around JC's albums - the only thing that I personally can add is to let all of you now that this CD is one of my all time favorite blues albums - and close behind One Believer is JC's other album Howling Mercy - both of these albums are dark and very intense - my favorite tracks on this album are 'Devil in my closet' and 'Voodoo Edge'. If you like blues you will like this album - I highly recommend it."
