This has all the elements of a Southern afternoon front porch jam and party with everything but the sound of friends whooping it up while dancing around the yard. The Chicago Kingsnakes may not be known far outside of their territory, but their latest, Grass Roots, is a follow-up to Blues Island and another winner. Consisting of James Anderson's superb guitar work and potent vocals, Nelson Keaton's solid harp, and Ron Berry's bass along with Tom King's uncluttered drumming, this stripped-back. all-acoustic affair is without a blemish (unless you consider the short playing time).

Anderson dishes out fine work, whether on his National, Gibson, or Supro, and vocally, he's got a relaxing style. The Delta feel of Wolf In Sheep's Clothes is stunning while the instrumental, Chili Con Queso, works off a romping Latin groove, and Berry's Morning Booze Flu is a stark reminder to the after effects of a bit too much of the night before. Whether the hand-clapping fun of Downtown Train or the backwoods dirt of Best Friend Blues, this unplugged gem has plenty for fans of acoustic blues and roots music.
