Lowell Fulsom
Kent 520 - re-issue LP 

When blues vocal and guitar immortal Lowell Fulson signed with Kent Records in 1964, he was in his forties, with a Hall Of Fame discography already to his credit. He had crafted gems and juke box fixtures like Everyday I Have The Blues, Blue Shadows, Sinner's Prayer, Guitar Shuffle and Reconsider Baby-.-employed Ray Charles and Stanley Turrentine in his road band-.-and been a profound influence on B.B. King, Magic Sam and most of the generation of electric bluesmen who followed him.
His 1964-68 Kent tenure added the dimensions of flexibility and resiliency to his brilliance. After a final straight blues hit with Black Nights, he updated his groove with a shot of funk. The resulting Tramp hit the charts in early 1967, and still echoes around the world via cover versions on recordings (ever since Otis Redding and Carla Thomas jumped on it immediately) and bandstands, and sampling by Cypress Hill, Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince and Prince. When Fulson was done waxing three LPs and a fistful of 45s for Kent, he had demonstrated that his age was a less important number than his chart position.
