I was VERY surprised when I heard this CD, just got it on a whim. DAMN! He covers BB King, Stevie Ray, and Jimi on one album -- the cool thing, though, is that he covers them WELL! Better than well, this guy is killer, listen to me..... if you dig Stevie Ray's early upbeat stuff this is a fresher, more rockin version of it. Very cool, very very cool. I don't know what it would take for someone to dislike this album, it's just that good.

Crisp, driving blues. Great vocals and guitar. Good original material mixed with well selected covers. "Payin' the Cost to be the Boss" is an excellent take on the old B.B. King tune. The title cut is a well-written original. Many other terrific cuts. Highly recommended.
"At the Empty Arms Motel the blues is complimentary."

Jimmy Thackery is one of the best blues guitarists around. His talents should make him known to a far wider audience than he seems to have but such are the unfortunate realities in the lives of musicians and other artists. Thackery is one of those guys whose name should be instantly recognized among blues fans, but whose name is not that well known. Too bad.

This is one of Thackery's first releases and it's an excellent album. If you like blues guitar, then this album is well worth your attention. There are some Thackery originals along with covers of such great guitar players as Jimi Hendrix (Red House), Stevie Ray Vaughn (Rude Mood), B.B. King (Paying The Cost To Be The Boss) and Bo Diddley (I Can Tell).

Thackery is a guy who could share a stage with any of those players.

If you like artists like Stevie Ray Vaughn and B.B. King, you'll like this Thackery release.

not much to say that hasnt already been said. I keep this one in my Escalade just for the road trips. The only problem is by the time I get to the end of the cd its cranked all the way up and still needing more volume on the Bose. I bought this cd for one song, Jimmy's version of Jimi's 'Red House'. This cd jams from beginning to end. Do yourself a favor, buy a radar detector. I give it 6 stars

This is my favorite CD by my favorite artist. If you like the blues with a twist of rock I highly suggest ANYTHING from Jimmy Thackery. This guy never disappoints. I own all of his work and I don't regret it. Any of you who have a chance to see him live do yourselves a favor & do it! Check out his website!

This guy can shred the guitar! Saw him live here in Kansas City at the Grand Emporium and heard him do things with the guitar that I hadn't heard since Stevie Ray died.
