Commissioned tribute to the creator of the West Side Chicago blues sound, Otis Rush. Died 2018. He started his career in his early 20's moving from Mississippi to Chicago around the age of 20 in 1953. His Cobra Records from the 1956-1958 put him on the map and his style and appearances in Europe in the early 1960s were crucial in the development of young UK guitarists Eric Clapton, Jeff beck, and Jimmy Page--whose Led Zeppelin covered Rush's "I Can't Quit You Baby" on their debut LP almost note for note--an early tribute!
