AllMusic Review by

This previously unissued 1967 session teams up Winter with local Dallas bluesman Calvin "Loudmouth" Johnson on 13 loose blues jams. Johnson's timing is erratic as all get out and Winter fills in wherever possible while the band fumbles through the changes, including the most obvious ones, mucking up even the instrumental passages. Despite the promise implied by the package, it's easy to see why this session stayed unissued all this time, as it's a disjointed mess that's very hard to listen to. If you're a blues or Johnny Winter fan, pass this one right by.
