Album Review

Beware of the Dog was Hound Dog Taylor's posthumous live album containing performances that are even steamier than his first two studio albums, if such a notion is possible. For lowdown slow blues, it's hard to beat the heartfelt closer "Freddie's Blues," and for surreal moments on wax, it's equally hard to beat the funkhouse-turned-loony bin dementia of "Let's Get Funky" or the hopped up hillbilly fever rendition of "Comin' Around the Mountain."

Customer Reviews

Live Hound Dog is the Only Real Hound Dog

Hound Dog and Brewer both played some of the best live blues guitar ever put on wax, and this album is their magnum opus. Hound Dog's cover of Elmore James' "The Sun is Shining" found here is the definitive live version of that classic, hands down, and really sets the mood for the rest of the album. This album, culled from several nights of performances includes a lot of Hound Dog's drunken crowd interaction and is perfect for any roadhouse playlist.


This cd is absolutely great. I love live music because it seems like you get a truer view/feeling of the artist. This cd does not disappoint. I love the interaction between Hound Dog Taylor and the audience. Plus - he rocks the house. Enjoy it, it is well worth the listen.

There's nothing he records that is not soulful...

...but this recording is worth the price of admission just to hear his banter with the crowd. The guy epitomizes innate wit and cool.
