Although recorded a long way from King's home in Lovejoy, Illinois, the singer and guitarist delivered blistering renditions of numbers like the Rolling Stones' "Honky Tonk Women," Taj Mahal's "She Caught the Katy and Left Me a Mule to Ride," and producer Don Nix's "Going Back to Iuka." The album features musical assistance from Donald "Duck" Dunn, Jesse Ed Davis, Jim Keltner and many others. Available on vinyl for the first time in over 25 years!
