Enjoyable but less electrifying follow-up to Hoodoo Man Blues, cut in 1969-1970 -- looser, with longer songs that afford more room to stretch out instrumentally but don't quite equal the stunning precision of what came before. Buddy Guy returns on guitar; Otis Spann is the pianist, and Fred Below keeps superb time. ~ Bill Dahl
