Chicago blues master Lurrie Bell & his brothers serve up a fitting homage to their celebrated blues harp blowing father; a rock-steady stream of authentic, classic Windy City blues that grows more rare by the day.  Drummer James Bell stands out both driving the outfit “old school” and vocally on the slow blues “Keep Your Eyes On The Prize”.  The leader’s rough-hewn guitar and vocals and solid harmonica play from brother Steve and guests Charlie Musselwhite and Billy Branch make for a solid session of “get it while you can” fare.
