Description

John Primer is a small gem of a blues guitarist, shaped under the pressure of years of hard labor in clubs and backup work, sparkling on his American solo debut. The Mississippi-born bluesman played lead guitar in Muddy Waters' last band, until Waters' death in 1982; he's since been a guitar slinger for Magic Slim And The Teardrops. His stinging guitar solos and tough vocals are equally at home with his original tunes or sturdy covers of solid blues... Every time you worry a bit about the blues disappearing as an American music, someone like John Primer shows up to case your troubled mind. - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

John Primer reveals himself to be a confident, expressive singer and a skilled and versatile guitarist on his American debut album... The disc features 13 cuts covering a wide range of blues styles, tempos, and song formats... (showcasing) Primer's fluid guitar work and hip vocal phrasing along with some biting harp from Mervyn "Harmonica" Hinds... (John Primer) certainly rates as an up and coming blues artist to watch. - Chicago Blues Magazine

Reviews:

1. AllMusic - Bill Dahl
Chicago guitarist Primer's domestic debut album was doubtless an eye-opener for anyone not familiar with his searing slide work and sturdy vocal abilities. Apart from a very ill-advised cover of Glen Campbell's "Rhinestone Cowboy" (yuck!), the album resonates with mean, lowdown guitar work and fine ensemble backing.
