“A plethora of piano pounders guaranteed to satisfy the fussiest blues fan. These 15 cuts cover a range of styles.... There’s four knock out boogies with one by one of the fathers of the genre, Pete Johnson, included. Katie Webster’s killer side is from a live show. It is a special treat to hear slide guitarist Bukka White tickle the ivories on ‘Sugar Hill.’... Omar Sharriff gets a pretty spooky groove going on ‘San Francisco Can Be Such A Lonely Town.’ To top it off you also get sides by Chicago’s top session men Otis Spann, Lafayette Leake, and Pinetop Perkins. I ask you with names like these how can you lose?”
