Featured in Michael Fremer's Heavy Rotation in the February 2006 Issue of Stereophile! Pressed at Pallas in Germany!

Another absolute gem from Alan Bates' Candid label, this may be Otis Spann's finest piece of work on wax. He may not have been the blues, but he was sure close to being the blues pianist. Spann provided wonderful, imaginative, tasty piano solos and better-than-average vocals. He was arguably the best player whose style was more restrained than animated. Not that he couldn't rock the house, but Spann's forte was making you think as well as making you dance.

This is another in Pure Pleasure's Candid Series, featuring reissues from an incredible label that met its demise some 40 years ago. The American Candid label has achieved a near legendary status among the critics and the International jazz and blues public.

Otis Spann is the Blues was recorded August 23, 1960 at Fine Recording Studios in New York by George Piros, the same recording engineer who did many of the great Mercury Living Presence releases. Excellent recording.

• 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl
• Pressed at Pallas in Germany

Otis Spann, piano, vocals
Robert Lockwood, Jr., guitar, vocals
