Description

'Show Of Strength', recorded earlier this year, is absolutely bursting with the white-hot intensity that made Burks one of the greatest bluesmen of his generation. His sudden death in May of this year robbed the blues world of one of its brightest stars. A powerhouse performer, Michael Burks was one of the blues' top live draws, headlining festivals all over the world. His records were equally celebrated, with his last release, 2008's 'Iron Man', called "a knockout" by Mojo magazine and "exceptional, exquisite and wicked" in Billboard. 'Show Of Strength' is Michael Burks at his peak, exploding with fierce, gritty guitar work and smoky, soul-charged singing. From the fiery opener, "Count On You," to the majestic closer, Charlie Rich's "Feel Like Going Home," it's shot through and through with the immense strength and spirit of this modern-day blues hero. Also available ALCD4878 'Make It Rain'. ALCD4892 'I Smell Smoke'. ALCD4923 'Iron Man'
