Product Description

NEW Combo BLUWAVS CD and FLAC FILE

Review

The Blues Imperials' latest album marks a new level of strident indecency in their slash-and-burn approach to performing. The group, expanded two years back by the addition of a crowd-pleasing tenor saxophonist, now takes periodic breaks from the clamor with affective slow blues that steam for Lil' Ed's desperate, measured singing and guitar wringing. There are fourteen enjoyable songs, all from the pen of the head Imperial except J. B. Hutto's "Please Help" and group bassist Pookie Young's "Upset Man." -- © Frank John Hadley 1993 -- From Grove Press Guide to Blues on CD

Format: Audio CD
'What you see is what you get" simply a fantastic record, Lil Ed who was a nephew and very worthy successor of the brilliant J.B.HUTTO and also follower of the ways of the not less genial HOUND "Dog" TAYLOR nowadays is one of the main craftsman of Chicago Blues and the Blues in general. With respect to this wonderful record all songs shine at a same level although for me the three slow Blues "Older woman", "Living room for today", "Long long way from home" and the song which gives the title to the record "What you see is what you get" they seem me really fascinating, by the way this last jump blues which gives the title to the record could have called "What you hear is what you get" and it have been likewise very good. Well, coming to the point a record for my between 4 and 4,5 stars, first class Blues, highly recommended.

I love this album particularly for the great slide guitar of Lil' Ed. The slow blues 'Living for today' is one of my favourite tracks ever. The other slow blues 'Older Woman' and 'Long, Long Way from home' are almost as good. The upbeat tracks are generally great fun and get the feet moving. The album almost has a live feel.

Lil Ed and the Imperials are best appreciated live. Raucus, loud Chicago Blues. His vocals will not be favorably compared with Muddy or Wolf but this is good time, good feeling music..makes you feel like dancing. Favorite song is the polka, Please Help. It has the Got My Mojo Working groove done to perfection
