This record is about James Cotton's blues roots. It was Clifford Antone's inspiration for James to include "Straighten Up Baby" and "Hold Me In Your Arms" on this album because both songs mark the beginning of Cotton's influential recording career. James originally cut these two sides for Sun Records in the early 1950's. Mighty Long Time has been remastered for vinyl and is pressed here on colored 180g LP with a beautiful, one of a kind package (leather texture, die-cut, embossed logo).

From Memphis and Sun Records, James made his way to Chicago with Muddy Waters where he played on some of the blues master's Chess recordings. Since the early sixties, James has established himself as a bandleader and performer of unbelievable energy. He has the unique ability to absorb and transcend musical styles, bridging the distance from today's most modern blues to the pre-Chicago sides of Sonny Boy Williamson, Howlin' Wolf, and Muddy Waters.

His atmospheric version of "Mighty Long Time" on this record breathes the same eerie loneliness as Sonny Boy's original. James Cotton is of that time and place, and he takes us there on this great recording.
