He came out of Philadelphia, Mississippi, in the 1950s to join his new generation of young "South-moved-North" electric blues guitar slingers that also included his buddies Buddy Guy and Magic Sam. Otis Rush was always fantastic, but his later recordings arguably never topped these — from the Cobra Records years! 2 essential CDs. Killer vocals, searing guitar (including Clarksdale's Ike Turner on some cuts). Personal fav. New collection from 2020.
