# Via AllMusic.com:
Violinist Sugarcane Harris recorded a series of blues LPs for the German label MPS in the early to mid-'70s, though this effort is the least interesting of the lot. Consisting of eight originals, most of which are not particularly inspired, especially with the excessive production, including a backing vocalist, Harris overdubbing organ, bass, and percussion, and Dewey Terry's bland arrangements. The extended number "Makes It Kinda Hard," with a subtle freely improvised introduction, indicates a flash of the brilliance he displayed on his best MPS album, "Sugarcane's Got the Blues". But as a whole, "I'm on Your Case", which is long out of print (like all of Harris' recordings for the label), should not be considered as a high-priority acquisition by his fans. by Ken Dryden
