5.0 out of 5 stars It's mighty crazy 2 Aug 2011
By Dangerous Dave TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This set contains tracks from three of today's most celebrated Texan blues singer/guitarists - well that was the case but unfortunately Phillip Walker, my personal favourite, is no longer with us - plus a fourth in the less well known Erwin Charles. All these men operated for many years in the East Texas, South Louisiana nexus so the music is as reflective of the Louisiana bayous as it is of the Texas plains.

Most of the tracks feature all three of the named stars though some are pairings sometimes with Charles so there's plenty of competitive guitar sparring. The first track, "Roll, roll, roll" an upbeat stomper with excellent (and typical Texan) horns gives the favour immediately. It's recorded in the usual aggressive Alligator house style. Straight away we hear how the guys are sparking off each other's company. The very good sleeve notes very helpfully tell us who takes each break and in what order in addition to giving us profiles on all four guitarists.

While there are plenty of up tempo numbers, much as you might expect, within the generous fifteen tracks there's still space for some slow blues. My own favourite is Phillip's "I met the blues in person" which is very much his style complete with sympathetic horns.

For variety we get a number of non-blues though most are reflective of the swampland backgrounds of all of these men. Their unison singing of the late Lightnin' Slim's lascivious "It's Mighty Crazy" with some authentic rub board in the background brings the old Excello days back to life. The same can be said for their version of Lonesome Sundown's rocker "You're playing hooky".

4.0 out of 5 stars ****1/2. A real good-time CD 16 May 2005
By Docendo Discimus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Not strictly a blues record, "Lone Star Shootout" brings together Lonnie Brooks, Long John Hunter and Phillip Walker for 63 minutes of blues, R&B, soul, rock n' roll, and a little bit of pop. And while "Lone Star Shootout" may be lacking in deep social messages, musically it is a true treat.

There are three numbers where all three go full tilt together, sharing lead vocals; the rest of the material varies in personnel, group and solo emphasis. Lonnie Brooks takes three solo lead vocals and a number of solos, Phillip Walker is the sole lead vocalist on four songs, and Hunter gets three. Guest star Ervin Charles plays lead guitar and sings on the slow soul/blues number "Born Down In Louisiana", and he shares lead vocals with John Hunter on a sturdy rendition of Muddy Waters' "Two Trains Running".

There are a number of slow blues and soul tunes here, but most of the fifteen songs are mid-tempo or faster. The highlights include a very obvious (but very good) Guitar Slim-pastiche titled "A Little More Time", a driving "Roll, Roll, Roll" sung by all three guitarists, the utterly charming 50s soul number "This Should Go On Forever", and the swaggering "Bon Ton Roulet", which features a great horn chart and Marcia Ball rolling the ivories.
Mark "Kaz" Kazanoff plays terrific harmonica on Lonnie Brooks' original "Feel Good Doing Bad", and Marcia Ball provides the wonderful piano solo on the funky New Orleans-R&B of "I Can't Stand It No More". And if this take on Lonesome Sundown's joyous piano boogie "You're Playing Hooky" doesn't make you want to dance, you might very well be dead.

Co-producer Bruce Iglauer's excellent liner notes deserve praise as well, and huge props go out to these three magical sixty-somethings. Blues musicians just seem to get better with age, don't they?

5.0 out of 5 stars a well rounded rockin cd for your next party! 1 July 2000
By mark bielas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I`d like to compare this cd to others,but since its all star cast on this labels roster,that could be difficult.This is an extremely upbeat blues CD which would combine Horn and guitar driven blues.Concidering the 3 guitar assault not one of these blues vetereans tries to take over the stage.The incredible horn arrangements led by great session musician Kaz Kavinof is hard to beat.With only 2 ballads out of 15 tracks you can`t go wrong with this all-star blues lineup.This CD is a shoe-in for best blues collaboration come award time.

Three of today's blues authorities:Lonnie Brooks,Long John Hunter and Phillip Walker...shooting it out from the fretboard,with the confidence and rolling inspiration that only true masters of Texas Gulf Coast blues,Chicago school and R&B can.A 'magnificent three'blues summit that fails to disappoint.
