The live cuts on this album are unbelievable examples of Mike Bloomfield's guitar playing. His phasing and tone are second to none, and Moon Tune in particular is incendiary. The songs with horn parts are reminiscent of Electric Flag. Well worth seeking out! See full review

This is simply an incredible album, Memphis Slim's piano playing, singing and songwriting are first rate, and Matt 'Guitar' Murphy absolutely kills on this session. Note that while copies of this album may have a stereo sticker affixed to the cover,... See full review

My copy of this version is quite thrashed (many scratches), but none the less seems to be mastered at a very low level. Poor sound quality throughout, practically impossible to listen to.
