Regardless of how many times one hears Lurrie Bell he will do something to surprise you. To say he is creative and inventive is an understatement - each time he picks up the guitar he seems to have forgotten where the limits are, what boundaries existed the last time he played, and he fearlessly sets out on a new exploration. Blues Had A Baby is as good and honest a representation as you're likely to find of Lurrie's talents without popping into a Chicago blues club, having your head spun around by an impromptu `just sitting in' set by one of the true originals of modern Chicago blues.
