Meet me at the bottom, bring me my running shoes. You can't keep still to this album. The sound is straight out of the 1950s, played on instruments from the time and sympathetically recorded to enhance that R'n'B atmosphere. This is rough, raw, and makes you want to get on the dance floor. It's also just fine in the car where you can boogie along nicely.

Think early Elvis, Elmore James, Fats Domino, Chuck Berry & James Brown. Throw in some Curtis Mayfield, a bit of Ray Charles and pound it out loud and proud. This is, to me, what Eric Clapton ought to sound like instead of the anaesthetic stuff he churned out with BB King.

If you like your R&B raw and living then this album is for you.

There's some sterling stuff on their other early albums up to '82, but this is the one. It's the sound that does it - mixed very raw and up-front and the band really cook throughout with a fine mix of originals and covers. Also, I think that this was probably one of the albums that first nurtured a passion for rockin' R'n B for me way back when ( when John Peel played 'Extra Jimmies' on his show one night ). Thanks guys - the buzz is still with me. One of those albums that it's just impossible to sit still to - go fetch !

'Damn !!' as Jon Spencer would say ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Time Rock and Roll 6 May 2006
By ifutureman - Published on Amazon.com

When a band plays the blues as well as these guys did, it's hard to find the right words to describe their achievement. Suffice to say, Jimmie Vaughan is the master of understatement on guitar; Kim Wilson's voice is rich and soulful, and his harp playing is incendiary; "in the pocket" barely begins to describe Keith Fergusen's bass playing; and both Mike Buck and Fran Christina (who each play on about half the tunes) lay down a backbeat that is impossible to resist.

All the early T-birds albums are worth owning, but this one is my favorite, for its sheer consistency. "Runnin' Shoes" is band's take on an old blues standard called "Meet Me At The Bottom" which highlights Kim's perfect control of his voice. "Low Down Woman," a straightforward mid-tempo blues, has some of his most amusing lyrics. "Extra Jimmies" and "Jumpin' Bad" display the prodigious talents of Vaughan and Wilson, respectively (not to mention the fluid bass of Fergusen), and "The Crawl" should be on every jukebox in the country!

Enhancing an already perfect album, the CD reissue adds two bonus live cuts, one of which ("Bad Boy") is not on any other T-birds album. It's no surprise these guys sound just as good live as in the studio.

If you are looking for an example of how electric blues/boogie should be played, look no further.
