Ths CD follows Louisiana Red's triumphant 1998 return to America on the festival circuit, and his first new US recording in many years. In this mix of solo acoustic blues guitar and classic Chicago electric band contexts, Red demonstrates that he learned his lessons well from the blues musicians who mentored him so long ago. His impassioned vocals, dexterous finger-picking, and aggressive slide guitar work, wrapped around his personal story in song make for a compelling story of a triumph over a tragic childhood through the power of the blues. He is accompanied by a hard-driving band of Chicago all-stars, including Handy Award winner Willie Kent on bass, Dave Jefferson - formerly of the Albert King band - on drums, Allen Batts of the early Albert Collins' Ice Breakers band on electric piano, ex-drummer in the Muddiy Waters Band Willie 'Big Eyes' Smith on harmonica, and Brian Bisesi, currently with Luther Johnson's band-on rhythm guitar.
This one's got my bet for comeback album of the year. Take a blues cruise with Louisiana Red, 'cause the blues don't get any better than this! --Jazz amp; Blues Report
