Bukka White proves the staying power of the traditional blues style with his 1973 sessions. Riding the folk-blues popularity wave in the '60s, these early-'70s recordings find the storyteller/singer still in his prime. Bukka White conjures up in the studio the essence of the revival sound: a man, a guitar, and an authentic delivery. Recorded just a few years before White's 1977 death, this album of Bukka White solos with guitar reaches back into the catalog that made even a large figure in the pre-World War II blues.
Among these songs is "Sic 'Em Dogs," which, like most of the tracks, features the ex-boxer percussively playing with the force on his guitar that made him switch from wooden-body guitars to the more durable steel-bodied models. The production is clear vocally, through somewhat thin in the guitar area, and the accompanying notes are detailed.
