It's not typical for blues legends to be compared to rock stars, but guitarist/vocalist LUTHER ALLISON is not your typical blues legend. His powerful guitar work - equal parts traditional blues string-bending and wall-shaking rock 'n roll - is matched in energy only by his soul-deep vocals. His live shows (often clocking in at well over three hours) are the stuff of legend.

Blasting ahead at full speed, ALLISON wrotes the next chapter in his amazing story with Reckless (Ruf Records, U.S. release on Alligator). Recorded in Memphis with Jim Gaines (Stevie Ray Vaughan, Carlos Santana) producing, ALLISON brings his rock guitar energy to the deep blues he performs while singing with all the passion of the great soul singers. From the opening notes of Low Down And Dirty (written by LUTHER'S son Bernard Allison) to the rocking You Can Run But You Can't Hide to the searing Drowning At The Bottom to the socially conscious Pain In The Streets to the deep soul of Just as I am (duet with Marla Glen) to the searing slide guitar attack of I'm Back, ALLISON roars and rips through each song with the melting power of a raging fire.

Reckless is another giant step forward for the slash-and-burn guitarist. His rip-roaring guitar and fervent vocals place Allison in a league of his own
