    Released in 1998, this was Bobby Bland's 10th album for the Jackson, Mississippi-based Malaco Records. Bland is heard here in his late sixties. His voice had become coarse with age, but is no less convincing, impassioned, and downright sexy. Malaco regulars, most notably Robert A. Johnson, who died just before this release appeared in stores, wrote the bulk of the 10 songs here.
    Bland was living in Memphis, as were the writers of the title song, and that city's traditions of post-war blues imbue the proceedings with a resilient sense of place. The recording sound is warm and wide (earlier Malaco releases tended towards a narrower range of fidelity), and the overall effect celebrates the enduring and regal qualities of the blues. The opening snort/snarl on "There's a Rat Loose in My House" is vintage Bland. The set closes with a cover of ZZ Top's "Lookin For Some Tush," actually recorded a dozen years earlier during Bland's first Malaco session.
