Karen Carroll, Professor Eddie Lusk, Professor's Blues Review - Professor Strut mp3 flac download
Eddie James Lusk, Jr. known professionally as Professor Eddie Lusk (September 21, 1948 – August 26, 1992) was an American Chicago blues musician. An ordained minister, Lusk craved out a successful career in the blues and variously worked with Luther Allison, Buddy Guy, Jimmy Johnson, Koko Taylor, Phil Guy, Jimmy Dawkins, Sunnyland Slim, Michael Coleman, Fenton Robinson, Syl Johnson, and Otis. Rolling Stone named Lusk as one of Chicago& most underrated blues players. He committed suicide at the age of 43, following a dire medical prognosis. On his only solo album, Professor Strut (1989), Hardiman was replaced by Karen Carroll. His work also later appeared on the various artists compilation, Black and Blue, Vol. 2 (1998)
Eddie Lusk's only solo album is a blues revue, as he leads a variety of singers through several classic blues songs from all of the music's subgenres. The concept is good one, but the performance is decidedly uneven - several of the singers are mediocre and the fidelity on the release is poor. For those that want to sit through the rough spots, they'll find a handful of good solos, but not much more.
Karen went on to play at some big Chicago blues clubs. In 1995, Carroll worked on an album with five other female blues artists called Women of Blue Chicago, and it is still being played on the radio today. She was offered her own recording contract by Delmark Records in 1995, subsequently making the album Had My Fun. This was followed by another recording, Talk to the Hand in 1997.
Professor Eddie Lusk died tragically in 1992. Gloria Hardiman has retired from the blues, though she still sings gospel. Just before his death, Professor cut an album for Delmark with vocalist Karen Carroll. His session for Alligator’s The New Bluebloods remains the only document of Professor and Gloria. Their version of the Meet Me With Your Black Drawers On has become a hit in the Carolina beach music scene. 1987 The New Bluebloods (Alligator) 1993 Professor Strut (Delmark) (with Karen Carroll).
Professor" Eddie Lusk. b. September 21st, 1948 in Chicago (Illinois). d. August 26th, 1992 in Chicago (Illinois). Note that Eddie sings little on his album leaving most of singing parts to Karen Carroll (replacing Gloria Hardiman in his band). Several good moments to note : "Professor strut" is a good instrumental, "Everything is you" a nice jazzy song sung by Karen. Others are much less convincing. Overall a relatively decent album. Professor Eddie Lusk is a better singer than Michael Coleman ("I'm a blues piano man" and "Lottery blues" are also excellent tracks). But Coleman stands out as a great, subtle and powerful guitarist throughout the disc. In 1991, Eddie participated in Jimmy Dawkins' "Kant sheck dees bluze".
