MEL BROWN "Fifth" - 1971

MEL BROWN learned the guitar while fighting against the meningitis when he was a kind. He spent hours and days to follow his father's footsteps and play the Blues.

He began his musical career as a musician for Bobby Bland and released his first LP in 1967 on Impulse.

He doesn't play "regular traditional old-fashioned Delta Blues" but a contemporary blend of Soul Blues where you can find, piece by piece, most of his influences.

"Luv Potion" is the last track on side one, a 10+ minute instrumental that gives a good idea of how this album sounds like : it's soulful, bluesy, jazzy and hot!

Not to mention the absolutely awesome gatefold cover...

I had to post an ultimate Blues song before this Blues special feature is officially closed.
