The Return of the Blues Collection - Otis Rush
Those of you with long memories will recall that a few years ago I picked up a job lot of just under
40 of the 92 CD s in The Blues Collection which was one of those magazine series with a different artist and CD each month..
I've featured most of them but nothing for a while.
Occasionally since I have picked up a couple or a single one here and there taking my current total up to 44.
I recently picked up no 19 Otis Rush with I Can't Quit You Baby in the Community Shop in Wigton along with a double of no 25 by Robert Cray which I have recycled to charity.
This album also known as The Cobra Sessions features tracks recorded in Chicago between 1956 and 1958.
I am happy to report that Otis is still going strong at the age of 82 surely some kind of record for a bluesman.
The third Otis to grace these pages after Messrs Redding and Clay.
