Otis Rush and Buddy Guy live at the fifth annual Chicago Blues Festival on 10th June 1988

Given the Windy City's rich blues legacy, it may be surprising to learn that this was only the fifth occasion on which the hugely influential genre was celebrated on one of its true home turfs. As it was, Chicago's 1988 Blues Festival played host to a dazzling showcase of past and present icons.

Like Buddy Guy, the wider neglect of Otis Rush's work would eventually give way to a renaissance and built on that, an entire revival by the mid-1980s. Two pathfinders, as unique and important in their own ways as Waters, Wolf and Walter, would finally receive the critical acclaim they so richly deserved.

Klondike proudly presents a joint performance from two genuine blues innovators performing live at Grant Park, Chicago for the fifth annual Chicago Blues Festival from 10th June 1988.

Professionally re-mastered original WBEZ-FM broadcast with background liners and rare archival photos.
