The Mercurial King of the Blues
Karl Schantz | Michigan | 10/17/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This C.D. is the best blues offering in the last thirty years. It melds several blues styles with downright tribal rhythms, soaring, unbelievable guitar and brilliant songwriting with soulful singing to create a C.D. so compelling it is absolutely criminal that Lurrie is so unknown. Lurrie is the type of mysterious, troubled, talented genius from which legends are made. I will admit that this troubling music can be an aquired taste, but if you are a hardcore blues fan who is looking for something original and different, do not hesitate to buy this C.D., you will not be disappointed. Lurrie has made several recordings since Mercurial Son, and all have their charm, but this is the one, a must have, a true original. If you never buy another blues album, buy this one!"

"I have all four of Lurrie Bell's Delmark recordings and this is my least favorite.Try Blues had a baby or Sweet kiss of the blues and you won't be disappointed."

"Just caught a bit of Lurrie Bell on a blues radio show the other night, and was intrigued enough to buy this disk. Great, great stuff. Bell's guitar work is awesome and he's got a haunting, hypnotic singing voice. Steve Cushing's songwriting is just great also - who knew? Just a great listen all around."
