In 1985, with no fanfare. Rocky repaired to an Austin studio with some other Lone Star midnight creepers. Their goal: drink whiskey, throw a party, and lay down some ferocious, cutthroat blues. Included in this rogue's gallery were some of Texas' finest sons: Tommy Shannon, bassist for Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughan and the Arc Angels; Kim Wilson, who's blown the tin reeds with the Fabulous Thunderbirds ever since anyone had ever heard of Austin blues; Uncle John Turner, drummer-about-Austin and formerly of Johnny Winter's group; and keyboardist Louis EJovis. who grew up in Lou Ann's joint in Dallas, was a regular at Buddy Guy's club in Chicago and who has played with a pair of Kings.

And then there is special guest, former Houstonian Albert Collins - the Iceman, the Master of the Telecaster - who passed away the day before Thanksgiving. 1993. Collins could cut you, too; he was just cleaner with the blade than Rocky.

Together, through the course of nine raw gems, these guys roughed out enough mean licks, nasty lyrics and badass grooves to fill the Houston Ship Channel. The faint hearted need not apply; when Rocky decides to play, things can get messy in a hurry. (Marty Racine, Pop Music Critic - Houston Chronicle)
