The title says it all. This is the essential Otis Rush, the singles recorded for Eli Toscano’s Cobra label between 1956 and 1958. If Rush had never recorded another note, his legendary status would remain intact based solely on these recordings. Backed by players like Willie Dixon and Little Walter, it’s Rush’s impassioned vocals and stinging guitar lines that make “I Can’t Quit You Baby,” “All Your Love (I Miss Loving),” and “Double Trouble” the classics they are. In addition to the A- and B-sides of all eight singles released by Cobra, eight alternate takes are included, four more than the Paula edition of this material released in 1991. Along with a slightly better transfer from the original tapes, this is not only one of the best places to start for someone getting interested in the blues, but a vital part of any blues collection. Outstanding.
