James Blood Ulmer: Brixton Ace, London

Vivien Goldman, New Musical Express, 16 July 1983

Sound and loving fury from Blood, ambling aimlessly about the stage, like a giant teddy bear who’s somehow laid his paws on a guitar. Big, capable hands man-handling the music like it was a big meal or a big woman.
