5.0 out of 5 stars A "MUST HAVE" BLUES GUITAR ALBUM!! October 1, 2003
By R. Sullivan
This is a "must have" album for blues guitar fans or anyone who loves really great music - the guitar work is just spectacular! As an added bonus, Billy's songwriting is advanced and quite compelling, well beyond the typical 1 - 4 - 5 chord changes. This also requires a lot more of a vocalist and Thompson is up to that challenge as well. It all comes back to the guitar playing though, and every song is an opportunity for Thompson to display his considerable talent and marvelous tone. Frankly, I would have preferred a hotter, more compressed mix on the drums and the mastering doesn't measure up to the songwriting, singing and guitar work, but i still give it five stars without any hesitation!!!
