In London, J.B. settled in permanently with the Brunning-Hall band, making no effort to disguise his delight in finding a band with whom he could work easily, frequently stating that he wished he could take them back to the U.S.A., as they would make a tighter band than the one that he currently had.

The band was never obtrusive: Robert Brunning set a solid bass pattern together with John Hunt's Below-styled drumming; Bob Hall's right-hand featured prominently in many piano breaks and Pat Grover's guitar steadily supported J.B. and occasionally wheeled-off into well-constructed, valid breaks as on 'Pet Cream Man', where J.B. lets him build into perhaps his most effective solo. Whether playing before a faithful following at the 100 Club or the Marquee, or in front of rather cold audiences as at Chelsea College Of Art, J.B. never held himself back. His stage performance added much more to his music - sometimes heightened by guitar'battles' with his bass player, sometimes audaciously stepping off0stage into the audience to complete the solo from the front row of chairs - always delighted by his reception, warming instantly to his audience, reluctant to go, until the club management was forced to plead as much with J.B. to leave, as with the audience to go home.

A very self-effacing, modest man, sitting quietly in the bar sipping orange-juice, J.B. constantly belied the passion, intensity and guts of his music. Always seemingly shy of his capabilities and slightly embarrassed by the enthusiasm shown by his audiences, he personified the opposite of the aggression, bigotry and egotism sometimes too often typical of the music scene. Perhaps that is why he has yet to reach a larger audience.

If this album renews memories of some of the finest Chicago blues ever to be heard in London, or perhaps better, introduces newcomers to the real music of J.B. Hutto, then that is all one could ask. ~Bruce Bastin
