Album Review

A veteran bluesman who came out of Detroit in the early 1950s and recorded in many settings, Louisiana Red returned to his roots on this 1982 set. Originally recorded for the J.O.B. label but not released until Earwig put it out in 1995, this project features Louisiana Red unaccompanied on guitar and vocals. Rather than being an acoustic folk-oriented date, the music is often quite raw, passionate and electric. Louisiana Red proves to be a masterful guitarist and his singing fits the music quite well. All but two of the 11 songs are his originals, and some are introduced verbally, often dealing with aspects of the bluesman's life. Recommended.
