Album Review

Pulled from performances at the Chicago Blues Festival, Buddy Guy's Legends club with a couple of strays recorded in Lincoln, NE, that were too good not to include, this two-disc set captures Allison at the absolute peak of his powers. Disc one is the Chicago Blues Festival in its entirety with a bonus track of Luther jamming on the finale with Otis Rush and Eddie C. Campbell on a medley of two B.B. King tunes. Disc two is equally potent, a combination of performances pulled from Buddy Guy's Legends club and the Zoo Bar in Lincoln, NE. Luther simply played his heart and spirit out right to the end and these recordings spotlight it in a very fine manner. One of the label's best.

The best live

I was at the Chicago Blues Festival that night. Luther blew me away. He was better than anybody I had heard before or since, with the possible exception of SRV.

Luther Live is the best

If you like live blues, this is it. This is Luther Allison at his finest. Highly recommended to blues fans of all different playing styles and technique
