Synopsis

Amazon.com
Lowell Fulson's career spanned too many styles and too many decades for any collection to be truly definitive; however, The Complete Chess Masters is an excellent compilation of his work during the 1950s and early 1960s. Most of the material here wasn't commercially successful, which is a shame; there's some great music on this two-disc set, including previously unreleased takes of "Lonely Hours" and "Check Yourself." There's his hit "Reconsider Baby," of course, but there's also "Please Don't Go," "You're Gonna Miss Me," and "Love Grows Cold." Fulson's vocals and guitar work are the highlight, naturally, but his backing band's got a fine West Coast sound too. --Genevieve Williams

"This is a great 2 disc set. I had no idea who Lowell Fulson was until I entered the Blues Mart in Chicago. As I shopped I continued to be impressed with the music that was playing. I bought the album right out of the CD player and was not disappointed. I found play this album as dinner music when we have company and people will frequently ask who is playing. The album has a classic timeless sound that is hard to categorize. It's blues with that kind of Stax soul sound if you know what I mean. Similiar to Albert King, more more focus on the vocals\songs then the guitar playing. Sometimes the unexpected can turn out the best experiences. Take a chance and buy this album."
