    Recorded in Chicago, Illinois between 1963 and 1967. Includes liner notes by Bill Dahl.
    A schizophrenic, if ultimately highly listenable album by James Cotton, the ex-Muddy Waters sideman and disciple of Sonny Boy Williamson. About half the cuts are acoustic tracks from 1963, recorded in a South Side Chicago living room.
    Backing comes courtesy of the then little-known Elvin Bishop on guitar and Paul Butterfield on harmonica, along with Billy Boy Arnold (author of the Yardbirds' "I Wish You Would) on third harp. The rest of the album is big band stuff with horns, from Cotton's '67 solo debut, with contributions by Butterfield drummer Sam Lay and honking saxophone king Gene "Daddy G." Barge, better known for his wild solos on Gary U.S. Bonds' "Quarter to Three."
