Grammy Award Winner for Best Traditional Blues Album for 2017, Bobby Rush estimates that he has cut over 300 songs since he first began making music. He has been honored with three Grammy nominations, 41 nominations and 10 awards from the Blues Foundation, and a 2006 induction into the Blues Hall of Fame.
Naming your album after a song entitled “Porcupine Meat” may seem a little unusual unless you’re Bobby Rush, who earned his first gold record in 1971 with a hit entitled “Chicken Heads.” He elaborates on his recent composition: “If a lady won’t treat me right, but she doesn’t want anyone else to have me, that is hard to digest.” Hence the lyric, “too fat to eat, too lean to throw away.” Porcupine Meat is Rush’s debut release for Rounder Records, and one of the best recordings of his astonishing 60-plus year career.
Bobby Rush is the greatest blues man currently performing. Porcupine Meat is a testament to his brilliance, which presents him at his very best, and doesn’t try to be anything that he is not. “I just try to record good music and stories,” he humbly states. With this recording, he has more than accomplished his goal, and has produced one of the finest contemporary blues albums in recent times.
