Sugar Blue - Blue Blazes (AL 4819)
Although Blue has played and recorded with musicians ranging from Willie Dixon to Stan Getz to Frank Zappa to Johnny Shines to Bob Dylan, he is perhaps best known for his signature riff and solo on the Rolling Stones' hit Miss You from their Some Girls album. Blue performs his own version of the song on his 1993 Alligator debut, Blue Blazes.


   

In Your Eyes (AL 4831)
With In Your Eyes (AL4831), Sugar Blue emerges as a singular songwriter as well as a harmonica wizard. Between the haunting, late-night feel of the title track, the horn-driven, Latin-tinged Lip Service And Lies, and the up-to-the minute, socially aware Bottom Line, Sugar takes the harmonica - and the blues - beyond previously recognized limits.
