    Renowned as a piano-rippling sideman on the 1950s Chicago scene, Henry Gray returned to his native Louisiana in 1968 before anyone recorded him too prolifically as a leader. This album at least partially makes up for the oversight; backed by a solid Chicago combo, Gray alternates his own stuff with classics by Big Maceo, Little Walter, and Jimmy Reed, his ruminative voice and rumbling ivories prowess nicely spotlighted. ~ Bill Dahl

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (p.52) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[With Gray] thumping the piano keys on his own boogies and on venerable perennials of Chicago or New Orleans origins."
    Living Blues (pp.66-67) - "The title song, a bluesman/player's anthem, features Willie Smith's mid-tempo boogie-shuffle at its most propulsive, and Gray's barrelhouse treble splays add appropriately hot spicing to the mix..."
