These are the first studio recordings of Otis Rush from 1956-58 while he was at Cobra Records.Rush's classic "I Can't Quit You Baby " reached the top 10 on the national R&B charts,and later was covered by Led Zeppelin.His playing has been copied countless times by guitarists the world over,and players like Clapton and Page credit him as a major influence.Produced by Willie Dixon,and backed by future greats like Little Walter and Ike Turner,this disc is a pure classic.This disc contains the original 16 recordings he did for Cobra,plus 4 alternate takes.The first versions of "Double Trouble" and "All Your Love" are among the tracks included.
