Some Luther Allison...neglected blues artist.

Here are a few of his songs. Great stuff. I like the mood set by the first one especially. Luther was sure underrated.

I was lucky enough to be on the same bill as him in Europe somewhere - probably late '80s. I was blown away by him. He had a great band too. Thanks for posting this and reminding me.

I saw him about a month before his passing.He opened the show for Buddy Guy and Luther played with so much intensity and passion...Buddy had a lot of pressure to follow Luther's performance no doubt!!!Luther played mainly a gold top Les Paul Standard into a Fender Blues Deville and played such great,low down raw Blues.One month later I heard he had passed away.I really respect him for having played his music til the very end.He was one of the all time greats in the Blues.

I met him once at a music store job, nice guy!
Never got to see him play, alas.

I saw him 2 times in the late '70s, great shows. He used to play a kind of ES 335 Yamaha at that time. I've met him 20 years ago in a guitar store in Paris, having fun and trying some new axes, a nice guy and a great player.
