Biography

Otis Rush is considered one of the grand masters of Chicago's West Side blues sound. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, along with Magic Sam, Buddy Guy, Mighty Joe Young and the young Luther Allison, Rush created a guitar-driven style that inspired generations of aspiring bluesmen. His soaring, emotional guitar playing and his equally stunning vocal delivery have made him a legend of ... Read more in Amazon's Otis Rush Store

Editorial Reviews

Wise Fools was Rush's hometown club of choice when this smokin' 1976 set was recorded for WXRT radio. This, here, is gritty blues greatness: All Your Love (I Miss Loving); It Takes Time; Sweet Little Angel; Feel So Bad; Please Love Me; Mean Old World; Woke Up This Morning; High Society , and more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Something New From Otis Rush- Finally. December 29, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Otis Rush has always been one of the enigmas of the Blues World. He has retired, refused to play, walked out on recording sessions, even changed his voice (ala "Screamin' and Moanin'). Otis has not had a CD release in seven years since the excellent "Any Place I'm Goin'" set in 1998 (a lovely innovative recording).

Otis and Buddy Guy are the last of the West Side Bluesmen. While Buddy seems to get more popular and out there, Otis seems to have gotten more reclusive. For example, he should have been on the "Lightning In A Bottle" DVD at Radio City in 2003! Otis has had a bad time with record companies, managers, royalties, and the rest of it. This is a re-issue of a long lost tape of him playing in Chicago in the 1970s. We hear a younger, stronger and very impressive Mr Rush.

This set was recorded at the Wise Fools Pub in Chicago. It was part of a Chicago Radio Station live concert series sponsored by 7 Up of all things. As with most of Otis' output it took years for these tapes to become available. This CD is a must for Otis fans.

The tracks we hear include some of his best live performances yet released. He, interestingly, stays away from his normal set list (which we all have three or four versions of) and does some interesting never before heard tunes.

Otis starts with BB King's "Please Love Me" and goes through a varied set with a couple of old favourites like "All Your Love", (well we can't get enough of that one), and an eight minute "Gambler's Blues". However, he also offers new material in Robert Nighthawk's (later B.B. King's) "Sweet Little Angel", "Motoring Along", "High Society", "Mean Old World"(T-Bone Walker), "You're Breaking My Heart", "Woke Up This Morning" and others which make this a definate collector's item. It's a fantastic set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Archival Release August 14, 2006
Format:Audio CD
There are a number of Otis Rush live albums in the bins these days, but this one might just take the cake, catching him before his adopted hometown audience at the Wise Fools Pub in Chicago, IL in the mid-70's. He's got a crack band on hand and an enthusiastic audience in tow for a galvanizing performance of originals and standards. One of the knocks against Rush's live albums by critics is that the soloing has occasionally gotten out of control at the expense of the band, but not here. Everyone is really tight and this context makes his guitar solos even more explosive. The album takes its name from the emotional lament "All Your Love (I Miss Loving)" that he originally cut as part of his epochal Cobra recordings in the 1950's, and the version heard here is just as haunting. He wrings every ounce of energy out of that song and another emotional ballad, "Gambler's Blues" which builds to an amazing climax. "Feeling so Bad" and "You're Breaking My Heart" bring the emotional turmoil to the boiling point, before the band lets the audience off the hook with a blasting up-tempo version of "Sweet Little Angel," originally made famous by B.B. King. This is an extraordinary document of the Chicago blues scene and one of the finest musicians to grace its stages. Highest possible recommendation.

It's hard to believe that this was recorded at a pub over 30 years ago, and the tape was sitting on a shelf. The one problem I've personally encountered when buying older electric blues CD's, is sometimes the recordings, are so bad, they sound like it was recorded with a nail, by Thomas Edison. I.e.: "Buddy Guy & Otis Rush" "Blue on Blues", and "Buddy Guy & Junior Wells", Chicago Blues Festival 1964!" (Do not waste your money or your hopes on those two!) THAT IS NOT THE CASE with "LIVE AT THE WISE FOOLS PUB CHICAGO"! This is a crisp, clear, recording. In fact, it is louder than some of my brand new CD's. This is a winner from start to finish. Otis is in top form, guitar and voice wise. As of this writing, I have listened to it at least fifty times, and it is as fresh and rewarding, as the first time. Buy it, and it will be a valued member of your electric blues collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Living Legend July 27, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For almost fifty years Otis Rush has been one of the most powerful singers and innovative guitarists we have ever had. But what is truly mystifying is that for most of this time--and this continues to this day--Otis has been an unsung hero of the blues. He is taken for granted.

At the beginning of HIS career, John Mayall did everything he could to spread the word about the greatness of Otis Rush. He recorded one of Otis' masterpieces, All Your Loving (I Miss Loving), on his legendary Clapton/Bluesbreakers LP. And Mayall is now called the "Grandfather of British Blues." So that gives you an idea of the stature and longevity of Otis Rush. Clapton and Vaughn and Cray and Jonny Lang and Kenny Wayne and hundreds of others have gone on to great fame and success and riches, singing the music of Otis Rush and others. Ironic that the young followers got most of the props and recognition. But they are all very good musicians and it is not my intention to denigrate them; more power to them for keeping the blues alive! As technically proficient and talented as these guys are, at best they are only interpreters; at worst, imitators or even plagiarists.

Please, don't bother listening to them unless you have listened to the real thing first. This is the real thing: live electric blues wonderfully recorded at a small blues club, by one of the all-time greats, one of the innovators, one of the originals. Otis Rush is to Chicago blues as Robert Johnson and Son House were to country blues. Incredibly and fortunately, he is still with us, still vital, still performing.

There are only a handful of truly great original Chicago blues performers still around, and Otis, with Buddy Guy, is at the top of the list. I would not hesitate to call Otis THE greatest combination blues singer/guitarist ever.

How can someone this fabulous so be relatively unknown?
