The tune "Take Time Out To Hear Some Blues" is reminiscent of George's earlier smash hit "Down Home Blues." Present throughout the album is the unmistakable soul that is part of everything Milton has recorded going as far back as the Chess and Stax days. Milton is joined by newcomer Karen Brown on the classic "Mr. and Mrs. Untrue," a song earlier recorded for Malaco by Mighty Sam McClain. After 50 years of recording and touring, Little Milton still flaunts his strong vocals and of course his soulful guitar tone. Guitar Player Magazine said it best, "The only thing wrong with Little Milton's guitar playing is there is never enough of it." "Guitar Man" is a classic example why Little Milton is truly a living legend.
