Little Milton - Think Of Me (w/ Jon Tiven)

I had forgotten about this one...a repost!

I'm noticing a disturbing trend in these collaborations with Tiven and Company  - each of them ends up being the final album in the artists' career -- Arthur Alexander, Wilson Pickett, Howard Tate and now Little Milton! 

"For his debut Telarc Blues release, Little Milton continues in the soul-blues vein he helped to popularize starting with his work for the Chess label in the mid-'60s. His impassioned vocals are as strong as ever with guitar chops to match. The 12 tracks that make up Think of Me could be likened to a classic Stax production sans the driving horn section. The first-rate work of organist Bruce Katz keeps the proceedings percolating through Little Milton's soul-blues base liberally mixed with flourishes of country music, swamp pop, R&B, and urban funk. Any fan of Little Milton's Malaco releases of the '80s and '90s will definitely want to add this to his collection." AMG

Thanks, this is one of the few Little Milton albums I do not have. The man transcended genres with talent, class and panache. For that matter, this blog has also made me a fan of the Tivens' handiwork and ability to bring out the greatness of a performer. Thanks again.

Many thanks to everyone concerned for all of the excellent Little Milton posts recently. I think he was a fantastic - underrated - artists who recorded top class soul/blues at every label he appeared on for over 50 years.
