This is one of the all-time great blues-rock debut albums, reminiscent to me at least of "Tons of Sobs", the debut of our own home-grown blues-rock band Free with Pauls Rodgers and Kossoff from 1968. Kelly Holland, the lead vocalist, has more than a touch of Rodgers in his vocals.
It's great to see the album reissued after 15 years. If you like blues-rock of any sort and particularly Free, then you'll love this. I wouldn't bother with the second LP as the band just wasn't the same in my opinion after Holland left (after Donnington in 1994). That bluesy Free touch left with him to be replaced by what at times was a somewhat AOR feel which to be honest doesn't mix well with the blues.
Instead search for the 4-track promo "August 25, 1993" which features 4 of 35 live one-take recordings made for US radio stations, including a 7 minute version of "Bad Thing", a storming cover of Willie Dixon's "Ain't Superstitious", "Peace Pipe" and "Too Cold in the Winter".
