Review by Craig Whittington
It’s spelled differently, but pronounced the same as Broadway Joe’s. This release has everything to do with an unexpected health issue. It was recorded two weeks before surgery. Elvin Bishop and his trio are backing John up, as well as Kid Anderson and Alabama Mike, and they recorded at Kid’s Greaseland Studio. I can tell you that some of the best blues today come from Greaseland. The boys all donated their time and talents because John wasn’t covered by insurance. The CD went right to number one on the blues charts. It’s soul, it’s R&B, it’s feel good covers, and I mean that literally because they cover Feeling Good, for crying out loud! This performer doesn’t hold back, when you hear him you know he’s all in. That cannonball from the high board intensity has its own kind of fun and you feel it right away. It’s the stuff that sets Crazy Shirley apart from the other girls, God bless her.
You pop this in and you can feel the good times. I wonder what Shirley’s doing tonight…
