I can’t quit you baby

Otis Rush - I Can’t Quit You Baby

but I got to put you down for awhile.

A bit of a trawl of some music videos at YouTube and I came a couple from blues legend Otis Rush, one of the great guitar players, along with the three Kings – Albert, Freddie and B.B. probably in that order – that got me hooked.

A great performance, he still manages to look cool even in a cardy. That left handed up down strings never made things easy to copy his style.

That haunting voice the licks he has it all Otis, again on “Double Trouble”

Everyone should have a copy of the Cobra recordings it’s an essential for any blues collection – Reminder you can download an Otis freebie from last.fm Cross Cut Saw (live) from the album Tops.
