Album Review
The Byrd of Paradise
Reviewed 2006-07-11 
Deep cutting 1950s Chicago blues guitar, singing & material. Incredible sideman as well. Some of the fiercest blues ever recorded or played anywhere -- any time.

1. Bone-chilling vocals & playing.
2. Haunting lament.
3. Swingin' midtempo bounce
4. Primal scream - searing guitar
5. Cutting edge blues march
6. Talking guitar - loping drag
7. Chills up the spine blues
8. Back in the alley
9. Swingin' foot stomp
10. Slicing guitar, primal scream, British blues invasion anthem
11. Otis does B.B. - very well
12. Classic slow midtempo guitar drag
13. Otis does Albert King - very well
14. Live version of #10 - tuff.
Tracks 11-14 all live and rare
