West Coast harmonica ace Freddie Brooks blows hot, heavy, and lyrical on this debut outing. Coming to the table with an album chock full of his original material (no blues retreads here), Brooks surrounds himself with his regular working band plus various West Coast luminaries, including Rick Holmstrom guesting on "Back Where I Come From." Tracks to give a special listen to on this disc include "Fun to Visit," "So Damn Poor," and "Jigsaw Puzzle." A most impressive debut.
