Pulled from performances at the Chicago Blues Festival, Buddy Guy's Legends club with a couple of strays recorded in Lincoln, NE, that were too good not to include, this two-disc set captures Allison at the absolute peak of his powers. Disc one is the Chicago Blues Festival in its entirety with a bonus track of Luther jamming on the finale with Otis Rush and Eddie C. Campbell on a medley of two B.B. King tunes. Disc two is equally potent, a combination of performances pulled from Buddy Guy's Legends club and the Zoo Bar in Lincoln, NE. Luther simply played his heart and spirit out right to the end and these recordings spotlight it in a very fine manner. One of the label's best.

I'd give it 10 stars if I could. This record is so good, it makes me want to cry that I wasn't at the Chicago Blues Festival to see it live--especially knowing that it will never happen again.

This is one of the finest blues albums I've ever had the pleasure to listen to. Even though I never had the chance to be in Chicago for the '95 Festival, this live release drips with the late, great Luther's frenetic energy and fantastic guitar intensity. Add to that, what many compare in Luther's vocals to BB, and this recording resonates deeply in your blues soul. It also was a kick for me to be turned on to this artist thru my sister, who knew him personally and had a great personal anecdote to share about him at one of his concerts. Enjoy, blues-lovers for this is Pure Delight...
