it is fabulous, a must-have! I've played several times and it is sooooo good!
It is a tribute to Muddy Waters.

Last week I interviewed mr sumlin on his new album and his work with the Stones, Keith in particular!
more to come soon on the Forty Licks Fanclub site.

So - I just got my first listen and here's a mini-review:

THE highlight of the disc is the final track and the only one featuring Hubert on vocals - he does a wonderful acoustic guitar interplay with Keith on a self-penned tune. Interesting that this is the highlight - as the theme of the (rest of the) album is Muddy Waters tunes.

The only problem, per se, with the rest of the album is that it only makes you (at least, me) wanna play the originals....none of these even sniff the greatness of the Muddy originals. In that respect, it reminds me alot of Jimmy Rogers' final album, Blues Blues Blues...a fine album (and one that also features Keith -- and Mick -- on 3 tracks)...but nothing ground-breaking. Both nice listens.

Keith turns in a serviceable vocal on Still a Fool (but, really he's not much of a blues singer). Clapton probably comes off the best among the vocal performers (aside from Hubert). Other nice vocal contributions by Blondie Chaplin, David Johansen and others.

Hubert's leads steal the show, here, though. If you're expecting some wicked guitar from Keith, you'll be disappointed. He's here as a sideman on three tracks - nice, but nothing special.

Damned if Hubert Sumlin isn't going to be in concert tomorrow night near my home. Unfortunately so too is my cousin's satire troupe. It'll be fun to see her nonetheless.
