This debut album by Barbecue Bob & The Spareribs was recorded live at Coyote Studios in Brooklyn, New York, in 1996. The sound suffers some fidelity problems because of the live setting, but it doesn't matter much, since the hard driving, swampy blues style of the band is delivered in true garage fashion, warts and all, and feeds off its own energy. The lead track, a charging blues rocker called "Bad Luck Boy," is typical of the set here.
