with Jimmy Johnson. Four and 1/2 stars from Downbeat.
Live performances of the blues were a new and rare event in Japan when Otis Rush went there in 1975 as part of a package-tour with Big Joe Williams, Little Brother Montgomery and the Jimmy Dawkins band featuring Jimmy Johnson. But the wild enthusiasm of the crowd that awaited their arrival at Haneda Airport and was ever-present throught the tour sparked some of the best performances of Otis' career. Fortunately they are captured in this album, remastered for CD release from the original master tapes.
