Bernard Allison - "Serious" (2024)

In 1969 Luther Allison released his first album for Delmark Records "Love Me Mama", previously he had been the guitarist in the Howlin' Wolf and Freddie King blues bands. He settled in Paris (France) in 1977. His son Benard, born in 1965, cut his teeth in Koko Taylor's band before in 1989 he became the leader of his father's touring band and released his first album "The Next Generation" in 1990. Since then he has released twenty albums - four of them live - in which there has always been a direct reference to Luther's work with the inclusion of some of his emblematic and also other atypical songs. "Luther's Blues" includes twenty of those tracks, selected by himself and remastered by Pauler Acoustics. This is a treasure in which Bernard Allison continues to maintain his father's legacy as one of the fiercest, funkiest and missed Chicago bluesmen since the late sixties.
