Lowell Fulson: 40 Years Of Playing The Blues

Steven Rosen, Guitar Player, November 1976

THOUGH his name may not be as familiar as B.B. King’s, Ray Charles’, or T-Bone Walker’s, Lowell Fulson (with an n, not an m) has influenced and related to these performers as well as many others. Lowell’s talent for making traditionalist blues more than a simple 12-bar redundancy can be heard on his album, The 01’ Blues Singer, which comes nearly forty years after he first picked up a guitar.

Total word count of piece: 1627
