My personal favourites: "Stepchild", "Keep me in mind", "Mississippi Kid" and "Blues Like Midnight". The killer is a fine bluesman! Even "Folsom Prison Blues" sounds better than the disco-style 1980 version. I don't know the undubbed versions, though.


I totally agree on every song except Folsom prison. The cover from Killer country is better in my humble opinion.

The more I listen, the more I like. Especially turned up loud.

Trevor Cajiao gave the album a very mixed review in the December issue of Now Dig This (though he does say that it's still not as bad as LMS and MOM!).

Just played Rock and Roll Time again and it does get better with every playing. Also played the Knox Phillips Sessions and now I don't know which one I like best!

Just tonight Seppo Nättilä played "Sick and Tired" from the album.

No musicvideo to promote the record?

ALBUM COVER RATING: 4/5

I'm going through Jerry's albums on here and giving marks out of five for the album covers (regardless of the actual content)...

A great cover! By far the best one since 'Youngblood'.

I'd give the cover four out of five stars. If Jerry had some proper shoes on instead of those awful flip-flops I would have given the cover five stars!

True... you've persuaded me to change it! Someone with good photoshop skills could've easily put some shoes or cowboy boots on him digitally, though it would've made more sense to have thought of this when the photoshoot took place.
