Michael Osborn is a real blues original. He grew up In Ukiah, Ca. along with the Ford brothers, Robben, Patrick, and Mark and was an original member of the Charles Ford Band. He went on to develop a really unique style of playing guitar that is easily recognizable as his own.
Though Mike spent years playing with many West Coast blues artists it was his seven year stand with John Lee Hooker that really set him apart. It is because of Hookers appreciation of Michael's talent that John Lee chose to be on this CD. He wanted to support Michael in his solo efforts.
This is a wonderful release and features Michael at his strongest. Both his guitar work and his vocals are impressive throughout and of course the tracks with John Lee on them are very special.
