Otis Taylor takes his anger and pain and turns it into transcendent art. Whether honoring Rosa Parks or keeping alive the Stagalee myth of a murdering father, Taylor never fliches from the truth of the African-American experience. In doing so, he and his near-perefect band mates (led by Eddie Turner, who will blow you away), this album is as good as John Lee Hooker's Don't Look Back. My wife and I heard them live in a small cafe in Rosendale; he played a ten minute trance blues number not yet recorded that is the best blues song I've herad in years. (Plus his beautiful daughter's got a voice near heaven!)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
