With a houseband that includes Duane Allman on guitar and Roger Hawkins on drums, this is a fantastic R&B album that truly stands the test of time. Originally released by Cotillion in 1969, this album features the hit songs "Gambler's Blues," "Feel So Bad" and an instrumental version of "Baby, I Love You."
Rolling Stone - 5/31/69, p.36
"...It's a top-notch modern blues album....There's some fine playing and singing all through the record..."
Personnel: Duane Allman (guitar); Barry Beckett (keyboards); Roger Hawkins (drums).
Panned by many a critic upon its 1969 release, Otis Rush's trip to Muscle Shoals sounds pretty fine now (with the obvious exceptions of "My Old Lady" and "Me," which no amount of time will ever save). The house band (including Duane Allman and drummer Roger Hawkins) picks up on Rush's harrowing vibe and runs with it on the stunning "Gambler's Blues," a chomping "Feel So Bad," and a shimmering instrumental treatment of Aretha Franklin's "Baby I Love You." ~ Bill Dahl
