Subtitled "Live At The New Penelope Cafe - 1967", Late Night Blues is nothing less than a time machine; a straight-up recording of a 12-song James Cotton Band after-midnight set in a Montreal club, complete with audience reaction. Nothing, from static to clinking glasses, has been edited out; this is the real thing. Yes, you can hear some clipping, the piano's mixed down too far, but never mind these quibbles; the electricity of the performance comes through loud and clear.

James Cotton, by 1967 already a headliner and master harpist, here fronts a young band barely on the road a month. They're razor-sharp; there's no hint of over-rehearsal. Every tune is bursting with energy, partly because of the strong choice of material. We'd call them classics now, but they were fresh back in '67: tunes like Bill Doggett's "Honky Tonk", B.B. King's "Woke Up This Morning", Jimmy Rogers' "That's Alright", Albert King's "Rock Me Baby", and one of my personal all-time favorites, Sonny Boy Williamson's "Nine Below Zero". It would be hard to imagine a stronger 1967-era set; you won't need a video to picture Cotton wailing "Ain't that a pity', ain't that a cryin' shame".

The production is straight 1967, worts and all. This CD is an authentic snapshot of that era's club sound; I was there, and these folks have got it right. Lay back, crank it up, close your eyes, and you'll probably smell the smoke. The picture on the cover of a young James Cotton, in suit and tie, with a handful of harps and sporting a full pompadour(!) is priceless, and is in itself worth the price of admission. Yes, blues fans, you can go home again! ---Jeff Skolnik, greenmanreview.com
