Overview

Johnson's third album for M.C. is his strongest outing to date, with more than its share of interesting little wrinkles. With the exception of one tune, Johnson penned everything on here, all of them sturdy juke-joint-styled blues that spotlight his trebly accented guitar work and husky vocals. But the real surprises are his acoustic tracks, where he plays driving mandolin in emulation of Yank Rachell, especially on his heartfelt tribute "So Long Frank Frost." Another off-the-wall delight is his eerily evocative instrumental take of "Since I Met You Baby" played on electric lap steel. A very strong effort, and one well worth picking up.
