In 1994, Blind Pig released guitarist John Studebaker's first nationally distributed album, entitled Too Tough. Fully displaying John's beguiling musical talents, it was an immediate favorite with blues radio programmers and it claimed a strong position on the blues charts for many months after its release. The radio trade Hard Report called it "a sound that could only come out of the collective blues history of Chicago. A CD full of originals is refreshing and when it's this hot, Mrs. O'Leary's cow would be proud." A couple of the tracks appear on the soundtrack of the award-winning Canadian art film called "Exotica", directed by Atom Egoyan.
