AllMusic Review by

The three Ford Brothers (guitarist-singer Robben, Mark on harmonica and drummer Patrick), along with guitarist Volker Strifler and bassist Dewayne Pate, play a full set of very spirited material. The traditional "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl" is a high point but so are the pieces from Walter Jacobs and Paul Butterfield plus the five group originals. The interplay between the guitars of Robben Ford and Strifler form a powerful group sound and on "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl" the addition of guest guitarist Chris Cain adds to the fireworks. This set will be enjoyed by fans of post-1960s electric Chicago blues and features each of the Ford Brothers in prime form.
