1996, CrossCut Records CCD 11050
14 songs, all self-penned apart from the traditional "Blood In My Eyes", plus the hidden track "Nobody's Girl But Mine". The latter two were recorded with just one guitar and vocals. Most of the album was recorded in band-sessions, the rest was done by Hank with a little help from some friends. Both Michel Poffet and Christoph Beck - who were later to become "Loose Gravel" - play on "Walk". The album offers almost 70 minutes of music between dirty swamp-blues, crunchy rockers, rockabilly with a folk-touch and laid-back ballads.

An unassuming sorta session, brimming with southern warmth, fully alive, aimed at the heart of it all. - Folk Roots (GB)
Musicianship in general here is outstanding, with Shizzoe leading the pack on bottleneck guitar. A lot of the original lyrics on this release are wry, intelligent comments with a cynical edge. This is a solid disc with great original tunes. - Blues Review (USA)
A clean, accomplished and devilishly clever album. Hank Shizzoe remains a true original. - Maximum Ink (USA)
