Dark horse but lightweight
Review written by John Fitzgerald, January 3rd, 2005

I get the feeling that Brian Knight was well thought of in the business (due to big name guest appearances on this platter) but I found this album rather lightweight. Peter Green is listed for lead guitar on four tracks, "Goin' down slow" (which is a slow stroll that has thin sounding but recognizable Green lead lines), "Trouble in mind" (which is another slow stroll, this time with more delicate lines from Peter but unfortunately that makes him harder to hear on this one), "Blues is rock and roll" (which has good Peter licks in the left channel and these are the best part of this banal piano chunking rocker) and "Mannish boy" (which to me, doesn't sound "down and dirty" enough, it seems lighter because it's faster as well and this is the track on which you hear Green's parts the least I think). As for the rest, "Boogie beat" is a typical Chuck Berry styled boogie woogie, "Bring your corn to me" is a light-ish chunking rock song, "Honey bee" is a sliding acoustic guitar and vocal only track, "Got the blues 4 U" is a piano pounding swinger, "Good morning blues" is a speedy horn puffer, "Cabin in the sky" is a quick tinkly boogie, "Bright lights big city" is horn punching swagger and "Can't be satisfied" is a good grumbling slide guitar stomping closer. Though you may be trying to track down the Peter Green guest appearance ponys, this is one horse to avoid putting your money on.
