What You See is What You Get

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Lil' Ed & the Blues Imperials fit the bill for listeners who enjoy hard-driving good-time electric blues. Lil' Ed Williams only has an average voice, but his slashing guitar works well with rhythm guitarist Mike Garrett, and the rest of the quintet which includes Eddie McKinley on tenor is well rehearsed and spirited. The result is an above average set of rockish blues that, although not terribly distinctive, is sure to satisfy.
