And though Giant Step isn’t completely free from the old I-IV-V, just let the feedback harmonica moan from Give Your Woman What She Wants hook in you in, the toe-tapping Cajun feel to Need Somebody On Your Bond ride you home, and overpowered blast of Six Days On The Road stamp it down, then see who cares about changes. It’s the title track’s delicate, sparse mood I can’t stuff in my head enough. The album is actually 2 in 1, accompanied with De Ole Folks At Home, an acoustic solo set with Taj providing old-time steel-body slide picking, clawhammer banjo, harp, and hambone on traditional and classic numbers like Cluck Old Hen and Fishing Blues, as well as several originals.

Folks At Home, is Taj Mahal on his own, and is entirely accoustic, I prefer the Giant Step album, but I really like them both, I like this music a lot, so much so that have already added another four of his albums to my collection and I don't see it stopping there. This cd is one of Mahal's better works. It contains his own works as well as blues standards,my favourites being Stagger Lee and Candy Ma. he line up is the same as the debut album which I also recomend,Taj Mahal. His later work I found hit and miss.
