Cold Day In Hell

Cold Day In Hell

Otis Rush
November 4, 2008
Guts. That's what this record is all about: Otis Rush's days in hell, and the tentative joys of returning above ground. Everything about Otis Rush says guts: his squeezing, piercing guitar, his raw-boned, blood-tinged vocals, his lyrics, full of a profound sense of the trips men and women lay on each other - and most of all, his courage to open up from the inside and let all this out in his music. Original 1975 recording with Abb Locke, Big Moose, Mighty Joe Young and others.

Hubert Sumlin
January 1, 2003
If you are a blues fan, you know Howlin' Wolf. And if you know Wolf, you already know Hubert Sumlin. Over a span of almost 25 years together, Hubert and Wolf recorded a slew of acknowledged blues classics (in addition to knocking each other's teeth out!). Yet as influential as he was until his death in December 2011, Hubert Sumlin recorded relatively few solo albums during his lifetime. And when he did, he was often obscured by a mountain of production. On I Know You, surrounded by old ...

Skip James
December 1, 2002
Born in Bentonia, Mississippi in 1902, Skip James began recording for Paramount in Grafton, WI in the 1930s after showcasing his unmistakable talent in a series of auditions in Jackson, Mississippi. Particularly interesting was his three finger picking technique, his high pitch voice and the rural blues tales that he put in music for a sub genre of blues that was later called the "Bentonia school". This LP includes some of his rarest early tunes from those lost 78 rpm from the Grafton period.
