James Cotton was an American blues harmonica player singer and songwriter who performed and recorded with many of the great blues artists of his time and with his own band. He played drums early in his career but is famous for his harmonica playing. In the 1970s Cotton recorded several albums for Buddah Records. This 3 CD collection features three of those recordings. Live & On The Move was released in 1976 by Buddah and faithfully captures the boogie-burning capabilities of the mid-’70s Cotton outfit. Cotton then went to New Orleans to work with producer Allen Toussaint releasing the “disco blues” High Energy. Before that came 100% Cotton an album that some regard as his zenith featuring the non-stop Boogie Thing a driving How Long Can a Fool Go Wrong and a racy Rocket 88.
