Robert Lockwood Jr. - The Legend Live (CD)


M.C. Records released The Legend Live, an intimate performance that was recorded in 2003 at The Rhythm Room in Phoenix Arizona and marks over six decades of releases from Robert Jr.  The Legend Live (MC-0051) features the 89 year old Robert Jr. Lockwood performing solo on his famous twelve string guitar. The blues on The Legend Live (MC-0051) can only come from a man who learned guitar from Robert Johnson,  was a top session guitarist for Chess Records in the 1950's and influenced a generation of musicians with his appearances on the King Biscuit Time in the 1940's on KFFA.  Many of the songs on the CD have never been recorded by?Robert or have never been recorded solo. The sessions were produced by Bob Corritore. Robert Jr. Lockwood is a twice Grammy nominated artist and a W.C. Handy winner. Look for Robert Jr. to be on the road playing the blues like he's done for over 70 years!

Lockwood's performance proves there can be a great deal of elegance in simplicity.  - Billboard
