    Valoración: VERY GOOD

Since he was very young, guitar player and singer Johnny Big Stone fell completely in love with the blues, devoting himself to learn every aspect and facet, which made him gradually become an expert in most blues styles and know their hidden secrets Now he has decided to capture the magic beauty and the tasteful elegant feeling of the jump and swing of those forties and fifties rhythm & blues combos, as well as the old sound of deep Louisiana swamp blues groups which often used to record for Excello To do so he locked himself in a room as if he was on a juke joint, only surrounded by two mics, a Revox recording machine and the instruments of his faithful musicians and friends who are Little Jordi on bass and harmonicas and Reginald Vilardell on drums, plus David Giorcelli and Victor Puertas as guests musicians on pianos and organ The result could not be better, nine dark covers ranging from Bill Doggett to T-Bone Walker, Tiny Grimes or Chester Burnet among others, that capture the whole essence and flavour of the most genuine spirit of vintage blues, thanks to the good work of these musicians who deliver all their skills to round up this welcomed new project that seems will be continued in the a future volume 2 that would possibly be published quite soon
