  • Liner Note Author: Mark A. Humphrey.
  • Recording information: Chess Studios, Chicago, IL (08/1973).
  • This, Wolf's last hurrah, is his final studio album. Cut with his regular working band, the Wolf Gang, everything here works well, despite Detroit Junior's annoying use of harpsichord on several tracks. Highlights include Eddie Shaw's "Coon on the Moon," Wolf's own "Moving" and "Stop Using Me," and both takes of "Speak Now Woman." Not the place to start a Wolf collection by any means, but a great place to end up. ~ Cub Koda
Professional Reviews
Down Beat (4/96, p.55) - 5 Stars - Excellent - "...classic....the 62-year-old blues man employs his deep, raw vocals and urgent harmonica much as he had in the past, throttling songs...till they throbbed with menace..."

Living Blues (3-4/96, p.79) - "...these neglected cuts sound wonderfully fresh and infinitely better than so many blues recordings that have come since--and better, in retrospect, than most all of the blues being recorded at the time (1973). Wolf's vocal powers were undiminished and his harp skills still strong..."
