From soul and blues legend Bobby Rush

On February 4th, 2014, 73-year-old Grammy-nominated blues and R&B legend Bobby Rush added a generous helping of all-analog, direct-to-tape, soul to the Upstairs at United series. The set opens with a blistering take on the Beatles "Come Together" (shown here) where most of the vocal is "sung" by the harmonica, followed by a sultry take on Otis Redding's "Hard To Handle."

Side two starts with a newly penned gem "Why Do They Act Like That" and finishes with Floyd-ish take on a Bobby Rush Classic, "Two Eyes Full of Tears." As traditional to the series, these recordings were done live to tape in a room above the mechanical hum of the record presses at United Record Pressing, then cut as a 45 RPM 12" EP for the optimum listening experience.
