CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Luther Allison Box Set to be Released November 17th


RUF RECORDS TO RELEASE SET ON NOVEMBER 17TH






The box set celebrating the 20th anniversary of the passing of blues legend Luther Allison will take the blues world by storm upon its release on November 17th. The pressing has been limited to 1500 CD sets, and contains the essential albums recorded by Luther during his Motown years. To compliment this massive array of music is an 88-page coffee table book written by Art Tipaldi featuring Luther’s inspiring story, comments from his friends and associates and many rare and private photos. In addition, the box is chock full of video footage. Included are performances from 1997 (Live in Paradise and Zoo Bar), 1991 ( A concert in Germany with Luther playing alongside his son Bernard), 1987 (a show from East Berlin.) The 1996 performance at the W.C. Handy Awards packs the power and excitement of Luther’s typical 3-hour shows into a riveting and relentless 15-minute blues set. This particular performance was the climax of his astonishing career. Luther stole the show by performing and taking home five awards, including Blues Entertainer of the Year.



Luther Allison is a genuine blues hero with an incomparable expanse of energy and love for his music and the people who love it.
