A major highlight is an inspired duet between Stevie and Lonnie on "Wham (Double Whammy)," going toe to toe for several exciting choruses.

One of the Greatest Records Ever

This is a great record. If you like Rock and Roll with a Blues feel then this is all you need. Stevie Ray is great but doesn't over step his place since this is a Lonnie Mack album he just sits back and makes it better.

If you don't have this in your collection then your collection is incomplete.

Fact is, Mack's lightning-fast, vibrato-enriched, whammy bar-hammered guitar style influenced many a picker, too, including Stevie Ray Vaughan, who idolized Mack's early singles for Fraternity and later...
