    At the age of 55, Johnny Yard Dog Jones finally had the opportunity to lead his first record date in 1996. Originally a gospel guitarist, Jones gradually made the transition to becoming a blues singer who also played harmonica and just a bit of guitar. His singing is likable and full of emotion as he explores a set of music that emphasizes 1950s-style Chicago blues, along with occasional soul ballads, but as it turns out, guitarist Johnny B. Moore unintentionally (and consistently) steals the show. A much stronger soloist than Jones, Moore's fiery statements are the main reason to acquire this disc; he is quite a powerhouse. Also on this worthy set are pianist Detroit Junior, bassist Bernard Reed and drummer Kenny Smith. ~ Scott Yanow

  • Critic Reviews
    Option (5-6/97, p.111) - "...Southern-influenced Chicago blues that covers all the bases with chops and conviction....at its best, Jones's voice invokes the spirit of the great Howlin' Wolf."
