Here is a quote from CD's liner notes.
"When I booked the studio and invited the musicians, there was no “song list”. I simply asked everybody to sing and play music as if we were at one of the blues clubs in Chicago having fun as we always do. We had a great time in the studio and kept recording one song after another. There were no second takes and almost no overdubs. After three days of sessions, we ended up with over forty tracks of high quality Chicago blues songs. " SHOJI
