Synopsis

Amazon.com
Soul Fixin' Man was the first Luther Allison album recorded on American soil in 18 years, and it reminded the stateside blues community why this Paris-based expatriate was once considered one of the very best of Chicago's second blues generation. He builds upon that reputation with Blue Streak, a follow-up which is even bluesier and more guitar-oriented than its predecessor. If the previous disc emphasized Allison's Wilson Pickett-like singing, this new one focuses on his Albert Collins-like picking. --Geoffrey Himes

This will be one of your favorite CD's

"Luther Allison's Blue Streak is simply one of the best blues albums around. There is not a disappointing track on the entire CD. From the infectious wood-block beat of "What have I Done Wrong" to the heart-wrenching "Cherry Red Wine", Allison poured his heart and soul into every cut. The combination of Allison's powerful vocals and virtuoso guitar playing blend perfectly; neither takes the back seat to the other. If you have never heard Luther Allison, give this CD a listen. Then, like me, you'll be a fan and want to have all of his CD's. Rest in peace, Luther."
Soulful vocals and Icy crisp guitar Blues!

"When this cd came out in 1995 it was one of the top albums on Guitar World's magazine year end list and for good reason! Excellent production, deep stirring vocals, Icy guitar playing and an excellent band added to a great cd! A favorite on The Crazy Coyote Blues Power Show 1490 KOTY AM (1490koty.com) Yakima Nation Radio in south central Washington state."
