Performance:   Sonics:
This is a wonderful record. Blues at it's very finest. Six stars for the performance (Lightnin' has always been one of my favorites). The sound is sometimes a bit distorted, but that's part of the game with many of these older recordings. Audio Fidelity has done a fine job getting so much out of the mastertapes. When audiophile discs get too much, I turn to this...
