Review by Mark Allan

The third album by the Canadian dobro wizard primarily offers agreeable, laid-back blues epitomized by the hammy title track, a vocal duet with Amos Garrett. Hearing the reggae tune "Johnny Too Bad" played on dobro is a pleasant surprise. Besides a tasteful selection of covers by Leadbelly, Blind Blake, Memphis Slim, and even Mel Tormé, Doug Cox plays four of his own tunes. The goofy "My First Bike" is a striking contrast to "The Blues Came to Canada," a lengthy litany of injustice in a country not known as a blues hotbed.
