Luther Allison - RECKLESS - ALCD 4849

Luther was one of the greatest unheralded blues legends. It was beautiful to hear him play and sing from deep down in his soul. Just before his untimely passing, Luther, having proven himself with eight Handy awards in two years, released this soul-fixin' disc of funky, rocking, feel-good blues. Featuring one of the best bands on Earth, consisting of James Solberg - guitar, Mike Vlahakis - keys., Willie Hayes, Lloyd Anderson, and Steve Potts - drums, plus The Memphis Horns, Wayne Jackson and Andrew Love.

Luther's son Bernard duets with his dad on one rare acoustic cut that demonstrates that his son is a chip off the old block. After Luther's recent return from France to the pinnacle of American blues artistry, this disc combines several stylistic elements that make it a major addition to any collection of his music.
