For their fifth album, the Peter Green Splinter Group returned to the canon of blues legend Robert Johnson, resulting in a sequel to 1998's The Robert Johnson Songbook - another cover album made up entirely of Johnson songs. With both albums, they had by then recorded all twenty nine of Johnson's songs, completing their tribute to one of the most (posthumously) influential blues singer-guitarists of the 20th century. Like the first album, Hot Foot Powder (its title taken from "Hellhound On My Trail") featured stripped-down, mostly acoustic arrangements.
A number of big name blues artists made guest appearances - guitarists Hubert Sumlin, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, Honey Boy Edwards and Joe Louis Walker. Their presence is clear testimony to how highly Peter Green is regarded as a blues musician. Dr John also contributed piano.
