Featured in Michael Fremer's Heavy Rotation in the June 2005 Issue of Stereophile! Pressed at Pallas in Germany!

Another wonderful production from Mike Vernon and released on his Blue Horizon label. Engineered and recorded in 1968 by Malcolm Chisholm at the Chess Records Ter-Mar studios in Chicago, the same studio where the audiophile classic Muddy Waters - Folk Singer was recorded. Johnny Shines is at the height of his skills and is joined by the cream of the Chicago blues musicians of the day - guys like Otis Spann on piano, Big Walter Horton on harp, Willie Dixon on bass and Clifton James on drums. Killer sound!

"Johnny Shines is the ultimate Delta bluesman, combining the classic styles he learned as a youth into a very personal style, fluent, creative and forcefully talented as both a singer and guitarist." - Jim DeKoester

"A forceful explosive blues singer whose strong, vibrato laden voice possesses a range and sensitivity which is rivaled by few other bluesmen." - Peter Guralnick
