review by me

Oh do I love this texas style swing boogie. You can tell right away that this release from 1971 influenced some great guitar players over the years and if 55th street boogie does not get one of your body parts moving to the beeat, then u must be dead.Most of houldogs songs are original but he does do covers of songs that are not his but are by one person only, James and he may be honmesick. Hound Dog Taylor's debut album and the first release for Alligator Records, is named and has no title. Its just a down right excellent version of what Mr. Taylor music was all about. the same
