Seeing legendary bluesman Bobby Rush pop up in the superb Eddie Murphy film Dolemite Is My Name led us to checking out his newest album, Sitting On Top Of The Blues. The past few years have been especially good for the 86-year-old musician’s career, having won a Grammy award in 2017. He’s nominated again, and for good reason; Sitting On Top Of The Blues is a fantastic album. Whether playing by himself or backed by a crack blues band, Rush is in fine form. Our favorite happens to be “You Got The Goods On You,” a sly, fun blues-rocker that highlight Rush’s witty lyrics. He’s always been playful, and this number makes us smile. Good to see the legend’s still going.
