Biography

A review from Amazon.com by PATRICK HAZELL (Washington, Iowa)

Super Blues has been one of my long-time favorite blues albums. I used to dance around the house in flying circles to this album with my baby children in my arms as they laughed and laughed in fun. I think to this day—some 35 years later, it is still one of their favorites—and they are in the “Biz”. I’ve been a professional myself— blues piano player since 1961, and harp player since 1964—started playing blues in the mid-50s. Yes, Little Walter is near his end on this album—it shows—but yet, his harp playing stands in there in spite of the lack of his powerful tone of previous years. The album is worth having even from this perspective. Bo Diddley is happening—energy is the main thing here—whether or not his guitar is in tune is besides the point. The live recording aspect of this album gives it an energy that most studio recordings lack.

My review comes with the full knowledge that this album and the Super, Super Blues album which followed later are probably two of the most panned blues albums ever released. Well, I’m one person who definitely bucks the crowd with my high opinion of both.
