Album Review

An excellent blues-based pianist and singer who was in Muddy Waters' last band, Lovie Lee deserved to be much better known. He worked in the Chicago blues scene from 1957 on but made few records. Lovie Lee's only dates as a leader are on this single CD, privately recorded sessions from 1984 and 1989 that are augmented by further titles cut directly for Earwig in 1992. Already 75 at the time of the earliest dates, Lee passed away in 1997 when he was 88. He sounds a couple of decades younger and displays plenty of energy on this extensive set of blues and rollicking near-blues. His sidemen are excellent, with plenty of solo space for the guitarists and his adopted son, Carey Bell, on harmonica. Recommended.

He Always looked for a Gig

The last time I saw Lovie Lee was at his house he wasn't doing well at all I can't see if he was in a wheelchair or not but I remember he wasn't well he was happy to see me and jimmie lee and he was talking about getting a Gig then. He told me all kind of old blues tales about chicago and Carey Bell. Andre Taylor got some stories about Ole' Lovie Lee. He taught Lurrie some things and the other Bell sons also. Lovie was great!!!!
