Format: Audio CD
this is a relatively obscure and only sparsely available album on the (German) Ruf label - a pity, as it deserves a lot more attention than it gets.

I am a big John Mooney fan (a declaration I made in my review of my favorite Mooney album "Against the Wall")

This album is about as close to one can get to a good live performance by John.

This set was recorded in 1995 live in Bremen - and it's just John solo with electric (slide) guitar, vocals and foot stomping. The recording is very good and immediate - and definitely has the feel of "being there".

The performance is really good - as good as I have heard him live and I've seen him often - he makes a lot of sound for a guy on his own.

His guitar playing shows a person who has spent a lot of time with it - someone who understands but does not accept the limitations of a single guitar - there are times when he sounds like a band on his own.......

The songs selected are really good, making this a very strong set, exhilerating and very enjoyable.

Very well worth getting this album - it should be a must for any live John Mooney fan -

some of the prices on Amazon MarketPlace are almost stupidly inexpensive for such a great album.

Few performers can generate as much heat as this guy! The sound quality is excellent, like he's in the room with you, and he is WORKIN for a livin. If you like National slide with amplification, foot stomping, and a rich texured voice that can shake your roof a little, this show is for you.
I understand he's currently without a label...if anyone out there know his new label or any touring info, please post a link! If this guy comes within 250 miles of me, I won't miss it!

Disciple of Sleepy John Estes plays guitar and sings with a such raw emotion, it's fair to say John Mooney lives the Blues. The oveflowing emotion is present through the all thirteen songs perfromed in front of audience. It makes no difference whether Mooney plays his originals or such classics as Big Joe Williams' "Baby Please Don't Go" or Robert Johonson's "Travelin Riverside Blues" or Son Houses' "Grinnin In Your Face". Result is all the same: very, very good Blues.

If slide acoustic Blues is what you like, this album is for you.

Solo performer: John Mooney - guitar, slide guitar, vocals.

I love the blues and this is one of the most authentic and powerful blues artists around. John Mooney is one of the greatest slide guitarists ever. I saw him live last year. If you haven't ever seen him live I recommend you do. This DVD brought back memories of that amazing performance.

There is not one weak track on this CD.
