The best of Eaglin’s terrific series of Black Top efforts so far — song selection is absolutely unassailable (lots of savage New Orleans covers, from Lloyd Price and Professor Longhair to Willie Tee and Earl King), the band simmers and sizzles with spicy second-line fire (bassist George Porter, Jr. and drummer Herman Ernest III are a formidable pair indeed), and Eaglin’s churchy, commanding vocals and blistering guitar work are nothing short of mind-boggling throughout the entire disc.
