AllMusic Review by

As the title says, this is a blues party, a midnight-to-dawn shebang with plenty of liquor, sandwiches, chicken, beer, and cigarette smoke clouding the room. Blue Bull's opening "I'm a Loser" sets the stage for a wild CD ride that will light up backyard barbecues given by the geritol set and blues lovers of all ages. The best performances are too numerous to list. These tracks will make even the musically dead rock their shoulders like robots. You may need to take a break after listening to about five of these ruthless juke joints in a row, as there is no letup from track one to track 27; even the slow-rollers are sobering and could double as wake-up calls. Few big names but plenty of big sounds. As essential as water for jump blues lovers.
