Impersonate Long John and you got a carreer ahead of you!- Not knowing much about Long John Baldry, I took a chance when buying this CD. Here's my tip: make sure you've heard a lot of Blues (not just the famous classics) before buying a Blues CD. Baldry strikes a cord with 'It Ain't Easy', and 'Midnight in New Orleans', two amazing hits that make great use of lyrics, backround vocals, and, of course, Baldry's voice. For instance there are the lines- 'It Ain't Easy to go ahead when.. you're.. going down!', and 'Driving down Highway 61, thinking Brother Johnson you are the one...' Overall, these two songs, along with parts of 'Stormy Monday Blues', and the infamous 9+ minute 'Don't Try To Lay No Boogie Woogie On The King of Rock n' Roll' make this CD worthwhile. And you gotta love that voice...even when singing German to the Hamburg audience.-MF/amazon.com

Baldry Only Gets Better and Better - I have listened to Long John Baldry since I was in high school. Begining with the first time I heard 'Don't Lay No Boogie Woogie on the King of Rock and Roll' I was hooked. Those who have heard, and who hasn't, Eric Clapton and Elton John, have already heard Long John Baldry without their knowing it. The influence which Long John Baldry has had on their music comes out clearly in the riffs and the words. Long John's music shows the influence of some of the greatest Blues players that have been around. The vocals are fantastic. The blend of the songs on this album will take you all over Blues territory along with a little Jazz. If you want to go off into Blues heaven then I highly recommend this album. -AMF/amazon.com
