delmark.com judgement by Steve Tomashefsky:
When Jimmy Johnson«s first album, Johnson»s Whacks hit the streets at the end of the seventies, he was heralded as being role of a new blues propagation that could actually detract fully-realized, fully developed Songs (as opposed to borrowing or plagiarizing jukebox standards). Delmark even printed a mellow flat sheet for that LP, a first in blues cross art!

AllMusic Judgement by Neb Dahl:
Uncommon wit runs through the lyrics of this miscellaneous set, certainly one of the more intriguing Chicago blues albums of the new «70s. Johnson»s -deliberate vocals are particularly intense on the emotional «I Need Some Elementary Money» and «Ashes in My Ashtray,» while «The Twelve Bar Blues» and «Poor Boy«s Dream» are heartening entries that don«t solid as relaxed for the guitarist. Johnson gets away with a honky-tonk reprise of Ernest Tubb»s motherland epitome «Drivin» Nails in My Sarcophagus,» but his reuse of Dave Brubeck's «Take Five» should have stayed on the bandstand.
