Entertainment Reviews:

Down Beat - 11/94, p.66
4 Stars - Very Good - "...a heavy dose of organ-driven blues-rock with soul-searching vocals, a slashing guitar attack....This is high-powered, funky electric blues...with a few unique twists thrown in..."
Musician - 8/94, p.90
"...On this, his first American album in two decades, the singer/axeman makes a burning re-entry into his native market. Typically cracking vocals and dense, idea-packed picking mark the straight blues and soul-blue numbers here..."

Soul Fixin' Man was blues guitarist/vocalist Luther Allison's first American recording in nearly 20 years. However, his domestic inactivity was not because Allison had stopped playing music. Far from it, since he was based in Paris and worked constantly on the European continent. A powerful player whose intensity on this set sometimes borders on rock (although remaining quite grounded in blues), Luther Allison (who contributed eight of the dozen songs) displays the large amount of musical growth he had experienced since the mid-'70s. Joined by his quintet, the Memphis Horns, and (on "Freedom") a choir, Allison is heard throughout in top form. ~ Scott Yanow
