agreements the government recom-

until 1970, when he voluntarily resigned

Perhaps I'm beating a dead horse to
Fontinue in this vein, but again the
material from the album is noteworthy
solely for Allison's guitar mastery.
AND SO WENT most of the evening.
Allison typically trotted out the stan-
dard blues set numbers, including
"Every Day I Got the Blues," B. 1.
King's "Never Make a Move Too
Soon," and, you guessed it, "Sweet

Allison reeled off the lyrics rather
lamely and routinely, only to pull the
string on his audience with a dazzling
and remarkably varied exhibition of
Finishing the song to what he judged
to be approval (I think it was the wild
roar that clued him in), Allison issued
an edict to any who might not be among
the standing. "If you don't think you
like what we're doing," quoth Allison,
"stick around-you will."
And quite a few people stuck around,
even for a slightly wearisome third set

he had been doing all night. Maybe it
was just too much of a good thing, like
drinking half a gallon of Jack Daniels in
one sitting or playing Beethoven's Nin-
th unceasingly for two days (speaking
from personal experience).
Luther Allison is great in bursts, but
time distills the product. So call it an
overdose. Call it the natural effect of
being a critic. Call it whatever you like,
but guitar mastery or not, I was glad
when Allison called it quits. Enough is
