Performer Notes
  • The Red Devils: Lester Butler (vocals, harp); Paul "The Kid" Size, Dave Lee Bartel (guitars); Johnny Ray Bartel (bass); Bill Bateman (drums).
  • Additional personnel: Gene Taylor (piano).
  • Recorded live at King King, Hollywood, California.
  • Ranges from straight-ahead, stick-to-the-formula, stock blues to foreshadowings of Butler's next agglomeration, "13," mixing blues and alternative rock. Named after and recorded at their favorite haunt, the live recording includes Butler telling his bandmates the next song on the playlist and what key to play in. ~ Char Ham
Professional Reviews
Q (5/93, p.99) - 3 Stars - Good - "...producer Rick Rubin captures the band, the atmosphere and the real low-down electric Chicago blues as they should be....this is the real blue feeling..."

Reflex (11/10/92, p.74) - "...easily one of the hardest-hitting rock records of '92....The blues is alive and well, maybe in its second coming, thanks to reckless young roustabouts like LA's Red Devils..."

Stereophile (12/92, pp.267-269) - "...the loudest, dirtiest, slammingest new blues release I've heard in the past five years, maybe ever...a recorded document that comes closer to an actual blues-club gig than anything else I've ever heard..."
