RE-RELEASED ON VINYL FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE ITS ORIGINAL RELEASE
Produced by legendary soul singer / songwriter / producer Jerry Williams Jr., aka Swamp Dogg.
————————-

The energy and power of his performances disguise any fade his star may have been feeling. Produced by Jerry ‘Swamp Dogg’ Williams, this is dirty, down-home and mercifully free of many unwelcome trapping adopted by the likes of Muddy Waters in the early 70s. – Record Collector (***)
————————-

Slim commands the studio, the intensity of his performances bearing witness to a life of hardship but also a resilient belief in restorative blues power. – The Blues Magazine (8/10)
————————-

He ((Lightnin’ Slim) had jukebox hits all over the South for many years, and when he ventured over to the Muscle Shoals area in Alabama to record these tracks he likely thought he, like George Jefferson, was movin’ on up.
And in a way he was, but not so much that we can’t still smell the grease of yesterday’s fried chicken all over these songs. That’s because you can take Lightnin’ Slim out of Louisiana but you can’t take Louisiana out of LIghtnin’ Slim. One spin of "Rooster Blues" or "Goodmorning Heartaches" and there’s no mistaking one of the real architects of swamp pop. Which begs the question: where does the "pop" come in, because this is thankfully more gutbucket blues than anything resembling popular music. Turns out Swamp Dogg was most definitely barking up the right tree. – The Morton Report
————————-

A terrific blues record that’s right at home alongside my Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, and Robert Johnson records. – The Record Changer
————————-

An album that shows Lightnin’ Slim to be worthy of a place alongside the real blues giants of the era. – Mudkiss Fanzine
