Great Chicago blues pianist and singer (the half-brother of Muddy Waters and a stalwart of his band), Cryin' Time caught Otis Spann in the company of the great blues guitarist Luther Johnson and the king of acid-rock guitar Barry Melton (then with Country Joe & The Fish). The results were far better than most of the rock-meets-the-blues efforts of the era as the young guys came to Otis on his own terms with love and respect. The resultant blues are deeply funky affairs brimming with spiky guitar licks, rolling bluesy piano and Otis's emotion-packed, world-weary vocals.
