Colin Hodgkinson's extraordinary talents on the bass guitar are still woefully underpublicized; his groundbreaking albums from the 1970s with Back Door, where the bass was played like a lead guitar (and was indeed the actual lead instrument), have always been difficult to find. On other albums with collaborators like Brian Auger and Spencer Davis, listeners have been teased with the occasional bass-only song. What a treat, then, to find a release that is in effect an entire album of bass solos. On songs like "32-20 Blues," "San Francisco Bay Blues," and "Sliding Delta" he chops his way through old blues numbers with nothing but a bass and his own voice, and the effect is startling. A few other songs, such as "Sons and Brothers and "All Blues," are played as a trio. But, as the title indicates, it all comes down to his righteous bass riffs. This is, quite simply, an album that every bass guitarist should own.
