Review

Recorded and issued only in Europe in 1977, Lost in the Blues (originally known as Troubles, Troubles) consists of nonoriginals that are laden with vocals of almost paralyzing pain, tension, and bereavement (the exceptions are two Jimmy Reed numbers, with Rush's anodyne singing no better than push-button entertainment). For altruistic reasons Alligator potentate Bruce Iglauer has regenerated Rush's original guitar sound in the remix, accentuating the emotional frankness of his phraseology. Furthermore, Rush's trio is augmented on this 1990 CD reissue by the harmless yet also controvertible presence of dubbed-in keyboardist Lucky Peterson. -- © Frank John Hadley 1993 -- From Grove Press Guide to Blues on CD

Both his voice and guitar playing are sweet and smooth. Maybe a little too much for blues traditionalists. And it doesnt include any of his own original material. Just covers. Nonetheless, a fine album

This is a competent release and while Otis may not be happy with it his guitar sounds sweet and his voice sounds as warm as ever. The problem is that this just isn't the best material Otis ever touched and while varying drastically in tone and style "Cold Day in Hell", "Right Place, Wrong Time", or a compilation of his Cobra sides is where to find out what Otis Rush is all about. Look here when you've got those essential discs as well as the currently out of print "Anyplace I'm Going" and the still available "Ain't Enough Comin' In". But just because it's on Alligator don't assume this release is the one with the most cred. It's one of the ones with the least. It's near the bottom of his studio work. It's not bad. I've heard LOTS of blues worse than this. However, for a legend like Rush there are many places to look first. And if you're a completist you'll buy this no matter what I say, won't you?

This is one of the best albums by Otis. Usually the problem is that he refers to emotions too directly by singing and playing phrases that have an analogy that is too close to actual screams of pain or dispair. Here he recognizes the medium of music and creates some great openness in his music through singing in a more abstract and relaxed way, letting timing and the solid blues scheme do the work. The Jimmy Reed tunes are more than entertainment (no pushing the button entertainment as is mentioned in a review here). These more straight blues songs, which in their abstract form leave no place for direct emotions, suit him very well. The band is very good as it does not stress the backbeat too much which gives the solo's and singing the change to take off and stay in the air without bringing them back to the ground at each beat.

Solid covers of old standards and Otis Rush signature tunes. Too many Blues recordings are re-releases with low grade recording values. This CD is not one of those.

While any Otis Rush effort will always include fine guitar work and great singing, Lost in the Blues is one of his least interesting albums. First time listeners would be better off going directly to the Cobra material which includes some of the finest blues ever recorded or either of his two most recent recordings. Lost in the Blues is a downer for Rush fans on all scores. Alligator Records' lack of respect for Otis in the release ought to motivate blues fans to turn elsewhere.
