Performer Notes
  • Additional personnel: Lou Ann Barton (vocals); Derek O'Brien (guitar); Delbert McClinton, Gary Primich, James Cotton , Kim Wilson (harmonica); Barry Bimh, Ronnie James (bass guitar); Jay Moeller, Wes Starr, George Rains (drums).
  • Omar Kent Dykes of Omar & the Howlers teams up with Fabulous Thunderbirds axeman Jimmie Vaughan on this tribute to blues giant Jimmy Reed. Dykes's thick, deliciously deep, Howlin' Wolf-like tones and Vaughan's spare, visceral style prove to be the perfect match for this batch of classics from the Reed catalogue. Dykes and Vaughan don't try to reinvent the wheel; they stick pretty close to the raw, shuffling sound of the original recordings, but never in a slavishly imitative way. Stellar guests like James Cotton and Delbert McClinton sweeten the pot even further.
Professional Reviews
Living Blues (p.47) - "[A]n inspired tribute....Dykes' deep, rough vocals and Vaughan's Texas shuffle guitar anchor the record..."

No Depression (p.99) - "The final result is more than just a very cool tribute album; it's one of the most satisfying blues sets is year.'
