A slightly slicker Koko Taylor than we've generally been accustomed to, with nice horn arrangements by Gene Barge that frame the blues queen's growl effectively. A Taylor duet with Lonnie Brooks would normally be something to savor, but they're saddled here with "It's a Dirty Job," which is beneath both their statures. Still, Taylor wrote four of the disc's best numbers herself, including "Can't Let Go" and the title cut.
