Live at Westville Prison, Delmark Records CD DE-681, 1995
Yard long blues
This album captures Little Milton and his band performing at an Indiana
minimum security prison in January, 1983. Its a real throwback to an
R&B revival show style since vanished. Wailing classic blues on vocal and
guitar, Little Milton remains a gentleman throughout. As expected, tales of
prison, cheating, and heartfelt teary love dominate. The restrained fire of his
guitar leads, and soulful vocals compensate for an only adequate recording.
While theres nothing groundbreaking in here, its a fine evocation
of a lost world. Bill Kuhn
