Recorded live at "Ma Bea's", 3001 W. Madison, October 28, 1976. LAST TWO TRACKS PREVIOUSLY UNISSUED! Blues fans may already feel they know Andrew "Big Voice" Odom from the records he cut with Black & Blue and Delmark, or through his European tour with The Chicago Blues Festival in 1974. But to really gel to know him, you'd have had to have heard him at the "Checkerboard", "Pepper's", the "South Louise Lounge" - or as is the case here, "Ma Bea's" - the various ghetto clubs in Chicago, where he spent most of his evenings. For this recording, "Big Voice" is surrounded, supported and urged on by Jimmy Dawkin's band. He is a heart gripping, dramatic guitarist. The wonderful lyrical second guitarist, Jimmy Johnson, accompanies most of the tunes on this fine live album.

Andrew "Big Voice" Odom (vo): Jimmy Dawkins (g); Jimmy Johnson (g); Sylvester Boines (b); Tyrone Centuray (dr); Carey Bell (Harmonica on 9)

Recorded 28, 1976
