Album Notes
Drink Small is South Carolina's greatest living blues artist, a versatile & unique performer who has been recording since the mid-1950s.

Born in Bishopville (Lee County) in 1933, Drink Small has one of the deepest bass voices in modern music and plays wicked guitar (and, on occasion, barrelhouse piano). As much a blues storyteller as a singer/instrumentalist, Drink weaves wild & woolly tales around his music... a session with this bluesman truly is a one-of-a-kind experience. He has played the Chicago Blues Festival, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, King Biscuit, Mississippi Valley...the list goes on and on.

"Blues Doctor: Live & Outrageous!" (originally released in 1988 as a cassette-only) is the ultimate Drink Small document, capturing performances in Charleston, SC 1986-88. Most of the tracks are Drink solo (electric guitar & vocal) with a sprinkling of band tracks for good measure. This album was nominated for a W.C. Handy Award the year it came out. Several of the tracks can still be heard on XM/Sirius Satellite Radio.

A must-have for any fan of real-deal blues and certainly for anyone who has experienced Drink Small LIVE!

Everything is allright!It's a "special" CD and a very good CD

Billy Bop (Brugge, Belgium)

One hell of a blues album
Boy, this is one hell of a blues album. The record is a remarkable document covering different blues styles, classic Drink Small "raps", and, above all, GOOD MUSIC.

Blues Revue (Oct/Nov '06)

A most welcome and overdue reissue
Almost as notable as the music are Small's outrageous between-song raps. His deep groove, rough guitar, and powerful vocals match his larger-than-life personality. A most welcome and overdue reissue.

Norman Darwen (Blues & Rhythm, London)

One of the best live blues albums...honest!
One of the best live blues albums...honest!

Living Blues (Sept/Oct '06)

Torrid street-gospel guitar
Venerable South Carolina bluesman/songster...torrid street-gospel guitar that plunges us directly into a realm of brimstone-choked terror.

Charleston Post-Courier (Devin Grant, music critic)

I was blown away
I was blown away by Small's 11-song set...Anyone even remotely interested in the blues owes it to themselves to pick up a copy of this CD. This is the blues played in a no-nonsense manner...it now has a permanent place in my iPod!
