Louisiana rhythm and blues, sounding like it was placed right where he was born, just west of where the Mississippi River empties into the voodoo swamp, just east of that Texas rodeo stomp, not so far from Oklahoma, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Georgia, for fans of fast down-home electric blues, rootsy country or rockabilly.



Thirty years after the 60s, Dale’s first long-player since 1969, this picks up right where he left off, and even if we didn’t need an updated version of Susie-Q, this set doesn’t sound redundant or stuck in the past. Instead this just sounds like he was having himself some fun.
