Album Review

A follow-up to his previous Soul Fixin' Man (which uses the same personnel and may be from the same sessions), bluesman guitarist/singer Luther Allison is in top form throughout this well-rounded set. Allison wrote (or co-wrote with guitarist James Solberg) all but one of the dozen songs, and these range from heated blues struts to blues ballads. Recommended to fans of lowdown, intense Chicago blues.

Great icy hot guitar licks.

I remember Luther in the mid-60's as one of the up and coming Chicago guitarists but he never really caught, but Cherry Red Wine is red hot minor blues ... he's really cookin'...

BAD

I'VE HEARD A 1978 VERSION OF RED CHERRY WINE THAT WILL MAKE YOU SLAP YO MOMMA' ITS VERY CLEAR THAT STEVIE RAY AND OTHERS HAD A LOT MORE TO CHOSE FROM THAN THE KINGS. THIS IS A VERY BAD MAN.
