AllMusic Review by

These 11 songs live up to what the title promises and then some -- from R.L. Burnside's pumping, surging opening cut, "Georgia Woman," and Junior Kimbrough's more reflective and subtle "Meet Me In The City," to Cedell Davis's more elegantly textured workouts ("Cadell's Boogie," etc.), the sounds are down and dirty, but highly varied, in keeping with this modern blues label's distinctive output. Dave Thompson, Paul Jones, and the Jelly Roll Kings are also here.
