Eddie Cotton - Live at the Alamo Theatre

 

Live at the Alamo Theatre marks Eddie

Cotton’s triumphant arrival on the blues

scene. It is not everyday that blues fans can celebrate the discovery of a young player hailing from a traditional background.

 

Eddie Cotton found inspiration in traditional

blues masters like Little Milton, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, as well as soul singers like O.V. Wright, Little Willie John, and Otis Redding.

 

Eddie shines on creative arrangements and

interpretations of Howlin’ Wolf’s “Shake For Me,” Hound Dog Taylor’s “She’s Gone” and the scorching closer, Little Milton’s “Walkin’ The Backstreets And Cryin’.” His originals include the Gospel drenched “Don’t Give Up On A Love Affair,” the mournful “You’re

The Girl,” as well as the soul blues “Why

Must I Cry.”
