Restrictions is the third and the last album by the original line-up of the American hard rock band Cactus, released in 1971 under the Atco label. "Token Chokin'" also was issued as a single, as well as "That's Evil", "Alaska" and "Sweet 16" also were released on A and B sides. The music heard is mostly heavy blues and rock with cover of a blues standard, "That's Evil" as a hard rocking, very heavy and riffy song (on the album it was credited as Chester Burnett (Howlin' Wolf's real name) although actually it was written for Howlin' Wolf by his bass guitarist Willie Dixon) [1]
