Although Detroit is usually associated with Jackie Wilson and Andre Williams' R&B and sensational 60's soul phenomenon Motown, the Motor City had a solid crew of straight-up bluesmen, and this set features some fine examples of the city's post-war era practitioners. The performances are wild - Walter Mitchell's "Pet Milk Blues" with its audacious, feuding harmonicas and eerie shrieks sets the albums tone, while funky homeboy Robert Mitchell's raunchy remake of the murderous, VD-themed lament "Something's Wrong" really goes the full route. Along the way you get a slew of rare gems from the likes of Slim Pickens, L.C. Green and the wonderful Baby Boy Warren's good rockin' "Hello Stranger" (featuring Sonny Boy Williamson's brilliant harmonica) and "Bad Lover Blues" which cogently sums up Detroit's sixteen cylinder aesthetic: "Just because he's got a Cadillac with that hydromatic drive, you don't ask him for no money, all you want to do is ride..."
