He states, “We had been bouncing the idea of a blues” record around for awhile. A “hardcore” modern Blues record. Every time we discussed it The Wolf came up. Willie Dixon came up. Smokestack Lightning, Spoonful, Evil – on and on…The stories – so vivid, even today! We wanted to be a part of that lineage, that history. We wanted to tell that Same Ol’ Story one mo’ time…Our way! We felt the time was right.”
