Long unavailable, FRIEND OF MINE was originally recorded in 1976, and represents the Chicago bluesman's stylish mix of blues and soul. Little Milton is in fine fettle, both as a singer and as a smooth-fingered guitarist, and is backed by a solid band and vocal support from the Haywood singers. Fiery numbers like "You're Gonna Make Me Cry" uphold Milton's electric blues pedigree, but it's on ballads like "Don't Turn Away" that the artist truly shines, turning on his deeply soulful charm in a way that always hits home.
