Michael Bloomfield and Nick Gravenites are only credited for the production and for writing most of the songs. With Rush, Johnson and Duane Allman present, it’s not possible to hear any MB licks in there.

In the liner notes he wrote, Nick Gravenites tells us: “This is Otis Rush’s very first album. Otis has been cutting single records for over 14 years”! A great record that is hard to find on vinyl.
