The undisputed kings of hard-charging, slide-fueled blues return with a release that more than lives up to its name. All the glorious houserockin' roar of Lil' Ed & The Blues Imperials' live show and overflowing with great, greasy grooves and deep-down blues. Features a host of new Ed originals and the addition of some barrelhouse piano and gritty organ to the band's potent mix.
