Wilson & Alroy’s Record Reviews
The production is sparse and the sound often not very different from traditional Chicago blues, which creates the feel of a tight and professional live performance: on track after track, the band finds a good groove and stays with it. […]

JazzMusicArchives.com
This is hot stuff, guys. After such a powerful track, WAR heads for an epic 19-mins Blues for Memphis Slim with so much place for instrumental interplay that it could also qualify as progressive blues with Burdon ranting about sex and death to mock Morrison. […]
