Masters of Modern Blues, Vol. 1 Review

by Cub Koda

This was originally released in the late 60s as part of a Chicago blues series of albums on the old Testament label. With an all star lineup of Big Walter Horton on harmonica, Johnny Young on rhythm guitar and Fred Below on drums, this murkily recorded album (which sounds much better on compact disc) nonetheless literally brims with energy. "Lulubelle's Here" and "Blues Stay Away From Me" is just Hutto at his most intense. A good album to listen to during a thunderstorm.
