LUTHER ALLISON

BLUE STREAK

 

Release 1996 - now on vinyl!

 

Blues legend Luther Allison returned (from an extensive US-Tour) with a studio album full of energy and vitality.

In May 1996, he won 5 trophies on the 17th W.C. Handy Awards in Memphis for this great album.

Blues Entertainer of the Year

Contemporary Blues Male Artist of the Year

Blues Instrumentalist of the Year: Guitar

Contemporary Blues Album of the Year ("Blue Streak")

Blues Song of the Year: "Watching You" ("Cherry Red Wine in the U.S.”)

 

Finally this great man, who celebrated the Blues Music for years, was honored in from of these 5 “Handy Awards”.

As its predecessor, „Bad Love“, highly praised by the American and British Press, „Blue Streak“ was recorded in Memphis, TN teaming up again with star producer JIM GAINES and the MEMPHIS HORNS.

„Blue Streak“ was a natural step for Luther Allison for his long awaited break through in his home country, the US.

Billboard was highly enthusiastic: „his guitar is marvelous and flashy as well as bluesy, and his voice reminds more of then anybody of Otis Redding...“

Indeed - “Blue Streak” are finely worked blues songs – Allison brand, a soulful voice and a guitar killer. Thank you, Mr. Allison!
