These live sessions begin with Bukka playing his National steel guitar and he holds nothing back on his own Hello, Central, Give Me 49. And he performs in the style of Charlie Patton on Gray-Haired Woman. The balance of his performance was recorded on Furry's Gibson guitar during a party at Mr. Lewis' pad, and gives us the chance to hear Bukka play a wooden guitar as he did when he made his great recordings for Okeh in 1940.

Furry is in fine fettle with his Gibson, as he pumps out one inspired tune after another, including Skinny Woman, Mama's Fish Blues, Kassie Jones, When I Lay My Burden Down and more and even a playful waltz, Let Me Call You Sweetheart. The joking and story telling banter among Bukka, Furry and friends is priceless.
"They were both in good form for your recordings. In fact, these are some of the best recordings of Bukka from his rediscovery period." -David Evans, Professor of Music, University of Memphis.

"What a recording! All the tracks are great, it's a real blues party!"—Jean Luc Vabres, Radio France Drome blues show host
