. . . one of the best singers you'd ever want to meet. He should have been out there long before.' --Buddy Guy '. . . one hell of a voice.' --Little Milton '. . . a helluva singer and a helluva man.' --Magic Slim 'I loved his gospel blues singing . . . the feeling he had was from his heart and soul.' --Jimmy Dawkins Andrew 'B.B.' Odom was a respected and well-liked blues vocalist for more than 30 years. His career began with Albert King in St. Louis in the '50s. By the `60s, he'd moved to Chicago and began working the south- and west-side clubs with the likes of Earl Hooker (Hooker employed Odom for some 10 years), Buddy Guy, Little Milton, Magic Slim, Jimmy Dawkins and many others. By the early '90s he was playing the north side as well. He was asked to front the Gold Tops (who had a pretty distinguished pedigree themselves!), and this album was recorded shortly thereafter. Unfortunately Odom didn't live to see its release.
