OTIS RUSH Biddy Mulligan's Chicago WXRT-FM 2/2/85

Biddy Mulligan's 
Chicago WXRT-FM  

Otis Rush (born April 29, 1935) is a blues guitarist and singer. His distinctive guitar style features a slow-burning sound and long bent notes. With qualities similar to the styles of Magic Sam and Buddy Guy, his sound became known as West Side Chicago blues and was an influence on many musicians, including Michael Bloomfield, Peter Green and Eric Clapton. Zeppelin covered  I Cant Quit You Babe on their first album !
Rush is left-handed and, unlike many other left-handed guitarists, plays a left-handed instrument strung upside-down, with the low E string at the bottom. He has played often with the little finger of his pick hand curled under the low E for positioning. It is widely believed that this contributes to his distinctive sound.

The backing band is pitiful on this. Wrong beats, lackluster, generic playing. Otis sounds fine, but the lousy band renders this practically unlistenable. Thanks anyway for the upload.
