Delmark DE 781 (2006)
When Cold Day In Hell (Delmark 638) was released in 1976 it was the first full album Otis Rush had out in quite some time. Later that year a live show at The Wise Fools was recorded which was broadcast on Chicago’s WXRT and used as a promotional tape sent to select blues radio shows to stimulate more interest in the Delmark album. The live show is now being released for the first time and contains songs not part of the radio program. Otis is in peak form on all 12 songs: “All Your Love,” “You’re Breaking My Heart,” “Please Love Me,” “Society Woman,” “Woke Up This Morning,” “Will My Woman Be Home Tonight,” “Mean Old World,” “Gambler’s Blues,” “It Takes Time,” “Sweet Little Angel,” “Motoring Along,” and “Feel So Bad.”
