Rush Completists Only! And as such I'd give it a 5...

"This is a competent release and while Otis may not be happy with it his guitar sounds sweet and his voice sounds as warm as ever. The problem is that this just isn't the best material Otis ever touched and while varying drastically in tone and style "Cold Day in Hell", "Right Place, Wrong Time", or a compilation of his Cobra sides is where to find out what Otis Rush is all about. Look here when you've got those essential discs as well as the currently out of print "Anyplace I'm Going" and the still available "Ain't Enough Comin' In". But just because it's on Alligator don't assume this release is the one with the most cred. It's one of the ones with the least. It's near the bottom of his studio work. It's not bad. I've heard LOTS of blues worse than this. However, for a legend like Rush there are many places to look first. And if you're a completist you'll buy this no matter what I say, won't you?"
Not for the picky, but still a good listen.

"Both his voice and guitar playing are sweet and smooth. Maybe a little too much for blues traditionalists. And it doesnt include any of his own original material. Just covers. Nonetheless, a fine album"
One of his least interesting albums.

"While any Otis Rush effort will always include fine guitar work and great singing, Lost in the Blues is one of his least interesting albums. First time listeners would be better off going directly to the Cobra material which includes some of the finest blues ever recorded or either of his two most recent recordings. Lost in the Blues is a downer for Rush fans on all scores. Alligator Records' lack of respect for Otis in the release ought to motivate blues fans to turn elsewhere."
