Cut back in 1982 in France for Black & Blue, the album pairs Odom with Magic Slim & the Teardrops as his backing unit, with Lucky Peterson handling keys and Little Milton turning up for a cameo on one number. A reasonable representation of what Odom could do behind a microphone, on his own stuff ("Memo Blues," "Bad Feeling") and material by Lowell Fulson and B.B. King.
