Red's new album
“Live At Painted Sky”
This is one of Louisiana Red’s very rare live recordings available.
In August 2006 Red performed at a live recording room called the “Painted Sky Studios” in the Village of Cambria, which is located on Hwy 1, midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco.
The wonderful atmosphere of this club-like recording venue and the capacity crowd of great blues lovers attending was the perfect mix, making this recording even more authentic.
That night, Red performed some of his best material: “Red’s Dream”, “Ride On, Red, Ride On” and “I Wonder Who” from his successful album “Lowdown Back Porch Blues”, which he recorded for Roulette Records in 1963.
Red's great versatility shines, from the old acoustic Delta Blues sound of Robert Johnson, all the way to the urban electric style of his mentor Muddy Waters.
Red is one of the last bluesmen still performing all over the world who learned the blues from the fathers and grandfathers of the Blues: Lightnin’ Hopkins, Arthur Crudup, Robert Nighthawk, Son House, Elmore James, Muddy Waters and his uncle, John Lee Hooker, to name just a few. Red took all of those influences, and, using the essence of all these great bluesmen, created his own unique style.
This live session marks one of the greatest moments of Louisiana Red’s nearly 60 years of recording
