Al Miller Chicago Blues Band "...In Between Time"

(Delmark) Miller is a Chicago blues/rock all star because he blew harp in the Dirty Wurds in the 1960s (replaced, I believe, by Roctober's own Alex Wald) and in 1995 recorded a pretty solid CD for Delmark. He then self-released a stellar record a few years later which didn't break any new ground but sounded as good as the best thing you'd hear in a Chicago blues club that year -- especially because his sidemen included such all-stars as John Primer, Dave Specter, Willie Smith and Barrelhouse Chuck. Re-released on Delmark, this mix of classics and original compositions (some qute keen, including the solid "Lake Michigan Waters" and the great "In Between TIme" ) may prove that a decade-plius late, it is finally Miller Time!
