Guitarist-organist-singer Peterson shatters the boundaries of blues to make his finest album. First, there’s the sound: crystalline, enveloping, and beat-conscious thanks to producer and bassist Bill Laswell. Then there are the stories, which range from Peterson’s take on the two-timing "Jody" yarns that run through southern blues to the hard-edged contemplation of prejudice "Is It Because I’m Black." His taste in covers is great, too, from a New Orleans funk version of the overlooked Muddy Waters anti-war gem "Herbert Harper’s Free Press News" to obscure soul demigod Howard Tate’s "She’s a Burglar" to Sly Stone’s "Thank You for Talkin’ to Me Africa." And jazz genius Henry Threadgill's flute helps Peterson transform Howlin’ Wolf’s "Smokestack Lightnin’" into an ethereal psychedelic trip. Best of all, though, is the sheer visceral quality of Peterson’s performances. His singing is strong, confident, and low-pitched, and his guitar is especially artful and gritty, finally matching the power of his organ virtuosity. Put this one on 2003’s "best-of" list. ---Ted Drozdowski, Editorial Reviews
