About the album: Paul Filipowicz is a 40 year blues guitar veteran. The music swings and sways and 
runs the gauntlet of emotion's that only the blues can provide. Rockin' shuffles to up tempo 
BooGaaLoo's, low down dirty West Side Chicago blues and even a Swampy nod to Louisiana 
on "Hootin' & Hollerin' . A historical documentation of 3 songs from the 1982 "Lucky 7" to close 
out the album shows the listener how Paul got the monicker "Blues Guitar Savage". A true original.
