The Louisiana Session
Track 5, 7 & 8 - Recorded live at "Metropol", Vienna, Nov. 17 1992 Track 6 & 9 - Recorded live in Hellmonsödt, Nov. 18 1992

"The Mojo Blues Band's preference for Swamp Blues and Cajun music eventually led to the invitation of musicians from Louisiana and Mississippi to Austria in 1992. Both Johnnie Allen and Harry Simoneaux, two authentic Cajuns are experienced war- horses from Lafayette, as well as Jimmy Anderson, one of the last living Swamp Blues musicians were on their list of guests. Jimmy who now lives in Natchez, Mississippi had a few local hits in the early 60's but then retired from the music business later to be rediscovered by Johnnie Allen - "Ambassador of Swamp Pop" in 1991".

The Chicago Session
Recorded March 5 and 6 1993 at Seagrape Studios, Chicago.
"In March 1993 we followed the call of the blues to Chicago for a second time. There on the Westside Mojos met up with many colourful personalities. Among them was Little Mac Simmons, who had gained a reputation as a singer and harmonica player in the 60's. With him they recorded his brand new track "Inflation Blues". In this song he praises the then new President of the U.S., Bill Clinton and expresses the hope of the American people for economic growth and social innovation". An extract from the booklet
