Blues Guitar at its Finest

DetroitDog

Searing blues guitar with a little R&B thrown in. Loved this Album !!!!! Bottle of Whiskey, Good to me, strong songs throughout.

Excellent album in the same vein as his father

The-Schav-King

This is a masterful album of hard driving blues guitar with excellent vocals. Shows a full command of the genre, taking clear direction and influence from his father, Luther Allison.

They Say All Music Guide

As the title and cover art suggests, Triple Fret is a player’s album. Although Bernard Allison gets star billing (and does all the vocals), this is a trio record, with fellow electric blues guitarists Larry McCray and Carl Weathersby contributing as much guitar firepower as Allison. Even better, second-generation Hammond organ legend Lucky Peterson guests, adding some welcome musical variety to the otherwise fret-heavy selection and getting his own showcase, the smoking seven-minute instrumental workout “Where’s Lucky?” That leaves the songwriting as the only weak spot, but unfortunately, it’s pretty seriously weak. Most of the songs on Triple Fret are hackneyed Chicago blues riffs with self-referential lyrics about how hard it is to be a bluesman. Tune out the lyrics and the undistinguished chord changes and the sheer enjoyment of the trio’s playing comes through. For some, however, that might not be quite enough. – Stewart Mason
