Blues at the Top

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bill Dahl
A compilation of the two albums Benton made for the French Black & Blue label in 1983 and 1985, this 15-song collection rates with his best. Two separate bands are involved, and the sound changes with them: backed by harpist Billy Branch's Sons of Blues, Benton exercises his R&B-laced chops, while the older hands behind him on "Honey Bee," "The Hawk Is Coming," and "Hole in My Head" guitarist Johnny Littlejohn, pianist Leake, drummer Odie Payne assure that the grooves stay more in the mainstream.
