The Hitman Blues Band features some authentic greats. Russell "Hitman" Alexander is joined by Bobby Forrester on keys (musical director for Ruth Brown for 26 years), Johnny Gale on bass (a noted force in music since the 60's), Bernard "Pretty" Purdie on drums (world's most recorded drummer) and a special treat on two cuts - veteran jazz vibist Ray Alexander. Blooztown is guaranteed to be a welcome addition to your collection.
