Can ya blame a guy who writes and plays amazing music with top notch players like Hubert Sumlin for 'not liking' this record?...probably not...the 'updating' of his tunes into 60's psych-rock with half-assed musicianship doesn't really do the Wolf much justice...whereas his OG records sound timeless and fresh, this LP sounds a bit dated and more like a 2nd rate CREAM than the true innovator...

The LONDON SESSIONS is a much better record for those needing to hear The Wolf in anything other than his orginal and most terrifying state...or you could just go get the 'Rocking Chair' LP or 'Moaning at Midnight' and hear Chester Burnett and Co in all their glory...

When I was a teenager and more of a "blues purist" I hated this album. Then one day many years later I heard it again not knowing who it was at first, and realized it was actually quite good. The versions of "Smokestack Lightning" and "Moanin At Midnight" are hypnotic. (Soundgarden later used this Pete Cosey arrangement of "Smokestack Lightning" on their 1st LP, though they didn't do it justice.)

have also a version of this album with red letters and frame on the cover, the label is the yellow/pink with blue/black logo and a thinner vinyl
