The highlight of this album is the collaboration between Albert Collins and Johnny "Clyde" Copeland, who apparently knew each other for quite a while. The songs "Black Cat Bone" and "Bring Your Fine Self Home" allow both of these gents to showcase their vocal and guitar talents in fine blues fashion. There are also a number of other excellent songs, like "She's Into Something," "T-Bone Shuffle," and "Blackjack".

The weak link? Robert Cray has been too contaminated by his forays into the pop world, his solo song "The Dream" falls completely flat.

But I highly recommend this one for you blues fans out there...
