Koko has never sounded better.This is the best cd since Queen of the blues.Five orginials,a couple of Willie Dixon's and a great cover of Magic Sam's All your love.

Her band is great and with Billy Branch on harp and a few with Steady Rollin' Bob Margolin on slide guitar they really cook.This is the best Chicago blues cd so far this year.

I love this from Koko, I have listen to this everyday since buying it. It's too bad it was the last one from her. She still had a lot of great music left to play.

Attention! Lady's and Gentlemen! In this corner, the reigning, "QUEEN OF THE BLUES!" Koko Taylor! After almost 50 years of singing the blues; on the basis of this CD, Koko, defends her crown, as the true, "QUEEN OF THE BLUES!" The power, vibrance, and guttural, reverberation, of Koko's voice, shakes your very soul. This CD is a true 5 star classic. The backup band, has some great instrumental solo's, between rocket fueled bursts of "Koko's voice! It is hard to pick out individual songs for any special praise, since they're all special in their own way. But the back to back combination of "Bad Avenue" and "Bad Rooster" (6&7) has you begging for more "badness". You get your moneys worth with 12 songs totaling over 63 minutes of roaring blues. "Hail to the Queen!" "Long live the Queen!"

The late Koko Taylor was still going strong when this was released. A basic blues platform but with her vocal ability to bring the backing band with her.

This is one of my favorite CD's she has produced. I enjoy the variety and depth of the cuts that really let her powerful voice shine like only Koko's can. Only wish i could get this in vinyl instead of CD.

Koko Taylor is one of those artists who just doesn't have a big enough catalog--we could use a LOT more music from her. She sings with passion, conviction, and a real love of music. This is real blues music too--not crossover in any direction, but true to its own great heritage. Highly recommended for all blues fans.
