Great. I love this album. An incredible collection of acoustic blues. The vocals are deep and bluesy. The guitar is awesome. A super album.

These two artists are the greatest contributors to the Chicago blues scene in the post-Muddy Waters generation. This album is the only acoustic capture of them that I know of, and it is fantastic. The coolest thing is that all songs are clearly improvised and recorded in one take, so there are several screw-ups that add to the character of the album (like both of them singing different lyrics at the same time in "Baby What You Want Me to Do"). Check out the full sound Buddy gets out of his guitar -- I guess it's a Guild, but I don't know what model (if anybody knows, please give me a holler).
