    After disbanding his group to take time off to clean up his life, Lil' Ed re-formed the Blues Imperials for this 1999 entry, his first for Alligator since What You See Is What You Get. The good news is that the time off had totally reinvigorated Ed's playing, singing, and songwriting, as he ultimately turned in a great batch of originals infused with blistering raw energy. The only non-originals out of the 14 tracks assembled here are nice takes on "Too Late" and "Pet Cream Man," both tunes written by Ed's uncle and principal inspiration, the late J.B. Hutto. Call this a comeback album if you must, but if great, raw Chicago blues is your thing, consider this one great album, period. ~ Cub Koda

  • Critic Reviews
    Dirty Linen (4-5/00, p.77) - "From the opening seconds of screaming, screeching guitars, and pounding skins, it's obvious that Chicago's Lil'Ed and the Blues Imperials are once again a force on the blues highway....ranks as one of the crown jewels in the esteemed Alligator catalogue."
    Mojo (Publisher) (10/99, p.122) - "...only a dull listener won't want to cut a rug....but whatever problems kept him out of the studio, they haven't dulled his music's edge: the Blues Imperials are still minty fresh."
