Elvin keeps the cornpone good-ole-boy schtick down to an acceptable level on this, perhaps his most serious solo album to date. Although Bishop's good-time approach is still evident on tunes like "I'm Gone," "Right Now Is the Hour," the acoustic "Radio Boogie" (with a guest shot from Charlie Musselwhite) and "Country Blues," the playing and lyrics get much deeper and more serious with "Shady Lane," "The Skin They're In," "Middle Aged Man" and "Long Shadows." Perhaps the most cohesive album he's made to date, revealing an artist coming to grips with his muse, his age and his art, all at once.

Review by Cub Koda, Allmusic.com

Ever since his salad days with the Butterfield Blues Band, Elvin Bishop has been cranking out some of the best guitar around. Bishop has never been one to brood; his blues celebrates life. This, his fourth release on Alligator Records, is no exception. Even a song about love gone sour like "I'm Gone" is done with a gleam in the eye, not to mention some tough slide guitar from Bishop. He playfully promotes the virtues of the "Middle Aged Man." And how about "The Skin They're In?" Here's a tune that should be required listening for everyone. Elvin wants us all to get along, and with music like this he can't help but make us all feel better about ourselves.
