AllMusic Review by

Originally recorded in the 1980s, this collection features Eric Burdon, accompanied by a coterie of Los Angeles session musicians, performing a selection of blues and R&B covers and originals. A lively cover of Jerry Byrne's New Orleans classic "Lights Out" shows that the R&B veteran still packs a punch, while "Bird on the Beach" displays his sentimental side in much the same way as his '60s classic "San Franciscan Nights."
