After great successes in the Sixties and decent performance in the Seventies, Long John Baldry had to bake rather small rolls in the following years, which wasn't due to his music. The eleven tracks on this album present the man who can be called "John Waits of the Blues", sometimes bar blues-heavy ("Easy Street"), sometimes sparingly orchestrating Country Blues ("Midnight Special"), as a folkie who wrestles new facets from "Gallows Pole", or as a primordial bluesman ("Dimples"). A worthy tribute to his late artistic years.
