“West Side Soul” by Magic Sam Blues Band - album review

TJR says

That’s All I Need” is a hot-starter, coming across as an edgier “Backfield In Motion”. It's one of four written by Magic Sam himself on this, his debut LP. The electric blues kick in from thereon, beginning with “I Need You So Bad”, an exceedingly cool cover of B.B. King's tune from 1957. Another of his own, “All Your Love”, fares well on side one, a really infectious number with nagging riff lines. Side two isn't quite as exciting, but the set is fairly solid all the way.
