AllMusic Review by

The Tennessee blues guitarist Johnny Jones emerged from the same 1950s Chicago scene that nurtured Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf, and also later worked with Junior Wells, Freddie King, and, briefly, a young Jimi Hendrix. Though he had mostly retired from active performing by the late 1970s, this 1998 live set finds him in Europe, in energetic form and with his stinging guitar technique still very much intact on songs such as the Chicago blues 'Don't Throw Your Love on Me So Strong," the slow blues of the title track, and the suggestive, New Orleans-style "Ain't Nothing a Young Girl Can Do."
