According to: Terry Abrahamson, Chicago Blues Guide...
“Backlit by six pillars of fire illuminating the way to The Blues That Time Forgot. Raw. Real. Playful. Ruthless. Surreptitiously Libidinous to the Dirtiest Extreme. Piercing and Powerful Beyond the Point of Exhaustion. And it’s all captured on “Soul Funky” as something so wild seldom is.”
