Description by OLDIES.com:
With his narrative style and music, Louisiana Red is considered one of the Blues world's consummate storytellers. With his clear, simple and stripped-down approach to vocal, harmonica and guitar work, Louisiana Red spoke directly to and always moved his audience. This release includes his Top Ten R&B hit from 1960, "Red's Dream".
Record Collector (magazine) - p.535 stars out of 5
-- "This is a most listenable album that hasn't dated at all. The Alabama-born Red was rarely seen without a guitar in hand."

Recorded in New York with Tommy Tucker, Lowdown Back Porch Blues is Louisiana Red's first album and, in many ways, it's his best. Supported by a bare-bones rhythm section, Red plays a number or traditional tunes and originals. His guitar is nearly as powerful and overwhelming as his vocals, making this a truly compelling listen. ~ Thom Owens
