The Lonnie Brooks Band - Turn On The Night (1981)

The Lonnie Brooks Band - Turn On The Night

Lonnie Brooks has played and recorded the Chicago-styled blues for over 4 decades and has a ton of albums you should check out.     His first solo album was released in 1968 and "Turn on the nigt" was his sixth album and second originally released on Alligator Records.

This is just straight forward blues rock with loads of great guitar, bass, drums, keys, and brass bits.  Lonnie adds some great lyrics and vocals which suit the blues backdrop to perfection.

"Heavy Traffic" will make you laugh when you hear Lonnie say that he is going to pull off the road and get out of the traffic and get himself a beer.....or two......

An excellent blues album from a legend!
