Living Blues - 1-2/91"When they were first released, the sides by Otis Rush and Albert King were a revelation...The three Parrot sides King did in '53 give you a glimpse of him during his very earliest recorded outings...Rush's classic vocal outings are always amazing...and his stinging guitar work remains staggering in its creativity."

Although Albert King is pictured on the front cover and has the lion's share of tracks on this excellent compilation, six of the fourteen tracks come from Rush's shortlived tenure with the label and are some of his very best. Chronologically, these are his next recordings after the Cobra sides and they carry a lot of the emotional wallop of those tracks, albeit with much loftier production values with much of it recorded in early stereo. Oddly enough, some of the material ("All Your Love," "I'm Satisfied [Keep on Loving Me Baby]") were remakes -- albeit great ones -- of tunes that Cobra had already released as singles! But Rush's performance of "So Many Roads" (featuring one of the greatest slow blues guitar solos of all time) should not be missed at any cost. ~ Cub Koda
