Jan Akkerman's debut solo album from 1968. The album contains several soul classics.

The album contains guitar work which was very representitive of his playing while a member of Brainbox. Still sounding very raw and raunchy Akkerman tackles a few good instrumental cover versions while adding the Akkerman touch, most notable of which are Green Onions and the traditional Hineimatov. Some Bluesy tracks are also featured here which demonstrate Akkerman`s lightning speed guitar abilities which became evident on the earlier "Russian Spy And I" with The Hunters.
