Product Description



As subdued and reflective as ever, the former Chicago musician is in fine shape on this recent Dutch session. Robinson draws heavily on jazz influences for inspiration during his complex guitar solos, and his rich vocals on a number of remakes of obscure 45s from earlier in his career, including "Crying the Blues" and "Find a Way," are consistently satisfying. (B.D.) -- © Frank John Hadley 1993 -- From Grove Press Guide to Blues on CD

Format: Audio CD
I had read good things about this recording session in Holland, and actually bought from a vendor in holland, This has surpassed "I HEAR SOME BLUES DOWNSTAIRS" as my Favorite ! His take on "BABY PLEASE DON'T GO" & "BLUE MONDAY" are new & inventive, Fenton truly was one of Chicago's greatest blue artists. I love the music from his "Gibson BYRDLAND" Guitar,, Always so sweet. this is his best disc. Get It.
