AllMusic Review by

Roulette is a fine blues lap steel player, and this disc should have you sliding around the room from the get-go. A tight band featuring Vernon "Chico" Banks on rhythm guitar and bass and Cleo Williams on drums keeps everything nice and funky throughout. His hearty vocals add a nice backbone to the songs, and his use of Hawaiian coloring on many numbers is sublime.
