Album Review

Recorded in Lewis' apartment in the summer of 1969, this record is an honest and unusual glimpse at the blues great. While the disc begins a little too ragged, Lewis rises to the occasion with great versions of "Lay My Burden Down" and "Furry's Rag," accompanying himself on guitar. While the inclusion of some cryptic between-song chat is unwise, the informal charm of intimate setting is nicely captured.
