The man known as "The Braille Blues Daddy" started out playing for Midwest crowds at an early age (he opened for Bill Haley & The Comets at fifteen), but fell in love with New Orleans and moved to there in the early eighties. He's been a fixture of the French Quarter ever since. While Lee can't see, he can sing the blues soulfully and earnestly. His guitar brings the Chicago styled blues of Luther Allison, as well as Albert King and Albert Collins, down to the Crescent City.
I was introduced to the joyful music of Lee via his definitive live records Live at the Old Absinthe House Bar, both the Friday and Saturday night versions. It's easy to tell from this record that he has a fantastic rapport with his audience and his no-nonsense brand of blues is aimed squarely at giving his listeners the opposite of the blues. Indeed, even his studio records sound like as if he is performing for a crowd and intending to give them more than their money's worth, and openly encouraging his band along the way.

This wonderful disc continues where Live at the Old Absinthe...Vol. 1 left off. It's the second night of a two night stand that Bryan played at the Old Absinthe House. A great bar in the French Quarter of New Orleans that Bryan played at for numerous years.
If you own Vol. 1 then you must pick up this one. It has the same great live recording quality from Vol. 1 with a great selection of songs.
Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Frank Marino, and the legendary James Cotton are all back for this fabulous live set. The disc starts off with a familiar cover, Jimmy McCracklin's 'Think'. Next up is Albert King's 'I'll Play The Blues For You'..an all time classic that Bryan absolutely smokes on. He plays it as if he actually wrote the song himself. More classics and originals follow during the course of the set.
Bryan shows on this disc that he really knows how to establish a rapport and handle an audience. He is in total control of this gig and the special guests don't upstage him at all. Guitarists will enjoy the precision and soul that are evident in Bryan's guitar licks. He plays in a similar vain as Albert Collins and Albert King. Fans of Mr. Collins and Mr. King will definately eat up Bryan's playing.
The CD is roughly over 70 minutes long so you get your money's worth and then some. Any blues fan's CD collection would benefit by having Bryan Lee in there. This disc is great to jam along with or to just sit back, kick off your shoes and be swept away by, in the live blues show atmosphere. Excellent live recording sound quality is clearly evident here. It's like Bryan is playing in your living room. You feel like you're there at the show when you listen to this fine album. It's one of the greatest live blues albums recorded in the 90s. A clear winner.
