Grammy Award - Best Traditional Blues Album, 2016

"The king of southern blues and soul is 82 and has not slowed a bit."
- The Guardian

Over his astonishing 60 year career, Bobby Rush has garnered three Grammy nominations, 41 nominations and 10 awards from the Blues Foundation and a 2006 induction into the Blues Hall of Fame. He logs over 200 shows a year and at the age of 82, he shows no signs of slowing down with Porcupine Meat, recorded in New Orleans. Rush was both pleased and proud to have the opportunity to make an album in his home state for the very first time. His impassioned vocals and in-the-pocket harmonica playing have been called among his best performances ever. Unlike most of his recent releases, these sessions feature nothing but real instruments and no synthesizers: all of the rhythm tracks were cut live in the studio, often edited down from jams that on several occasions ran close to 10 minutes. Joining Rush and his own talented band are special guest guitar greats Dave Alvin, Keb’ Mo’ and Joe Bonamassa.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
