The album’s fast, excitable sound of garage blues digs deep into his early R&B/rock & roll influences. It was recorded with almost every song and instrument pushing the needle into the red (i.e., overload). Normally, that would be a problem, except for the fact the repertory was written and conceived by Shaffer, with the likes of Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Slim Harpo, and early British Pretty Things and Rolling Stones in mind. Get set to rock it to the max.
The Jitterbug Shake artwork is by talented artist, Claire Smith, whose painting, “All The Right Moves,” caught Shaffer’s attention as the perfect visual for the CD jacket.
