Bobby Rush – BCI #15

The ‘King of the Chitlin Circuit’ holds forth on chitlins, playing 100 shows with Howlin’ Wolf, his grammy winning album Porcupine Meat and abundance of energy in BCI #15. When the topic turns to Jimmy Reed, it gets too hot for host Ric Stewart to stay out of the jam. A meeting of country funk strings ensues. Mind blowing tales of the Chicago blues scene of the 1950s with Freddie King, Elmore James and Luther Allison in Bobby’s bands and a few good jams from Bobby at Helena, AR’s King Biscuit Blues Festival salt the mix.
