Carey & Lurrie BELL – Dynasty! 1990


You have to hear it to believe it. Father & son at their best all Carey & Lurrie Bell should be rated high. I have all of the Carey Bell cd’s, his second cd (Last Night) is the only weak one, a great collection for any harp lover. The vocals are also great, Lurrie’s guitar is just the style I like, a nice song selection too.

Carey BELL & Lurrie BELL – Goin’ on Main Street 1982


Originally recorded for Germany’s L+R label in 1982, this studio date for Carey Bell’s Blues Harp Band finds the group stretching out on seven lengthy blues jams. Son Lurrie Bell contributes some nice licks, including a tortured solo to close out a nearly ten-minute version of “I Am Worried,” and other son Carey Bell Jr. anchors the rhythm section on electric bass.
