Luther Allison’s Love Of Baltimore

Luther Allison
When Luther Allison became Motown’s only blues act in 1972, interest in the genre was starting to wane.

And though the Arkansas native, who got honed his chops sitting in with Chicago blues legends like Muddy Waters, got on some pretty big bills via the label, he found a more receptive audience in France.

And surely Parisian’s screamed “Ooh la la” when seeing Luther intensely bend the notes or soulfully belting out a song.

On this week’s Total Recall, Bob the Paper Guy recalls the late bluesman’ s career and a stop in Baltimore where he was definitely interested in what the locals had to offer.
