Blues at Onkel Pö's Carnegie Hall. Lousiana Red was one of the most famous blues guitarists, known for his unique style. By the way, the stage name "Louisiana Red" (there have been other names as well) refers to a hot sauce customary in the delta-state of Mississippi.
Customary, just as the extremely archaic blues of which Louisiana Red has always been a paradigmatic representative; this was also the case on that particular evening in June 1977, when he, the blues import from across the Atlantic, was alone on stage of "Onkel Pö's Carnegie Hall" in Hamburg-Eppendorf, accompanied only by his guitar and his mouth-organ.
This legendary concert is one of the highlights of the Onkel Pö series. Recorded on June 14, 1977 at Onkel Pö's Carnegie Hall, Hamburg, Germany; Recorded by NDR Hamburg. Features extended liner notes in English and German by Michael Laages. Double-CD version includes 12-page booklet.
