Growing up in Buffalo, NY, Lucky Petersonwas exposed to music his whole life. Peterson’s father owned The Governor’s Inn, one of the area’s most renowned blues clubs. Peterson released his first record when he was five years old, which producedthe R&B hit, “1-2-3-4.” The young blues prodigy appeared on such television shows as The Tonight Show, The Ed Sullivan Show, and What’s My Line. Peterson has performed with a long list of bluesgreats, including B.B. King and Albert Collins. Double Dealin, is Lucky Petrson’ssecond release on the Blue Thumb label. Producer John Porter (B. B. King, Eric Clapton) says, “Lucky Peterson is far and away the most talented and exciting blues musician of his generation. This record proves it!” Porter has captured all the energy of Lucky’s live performances on a studio recording. I’ve been playing this CD several times over the last week or so and can’t praise Lucky’s talents enough through writing. Sit back and listen to all twelve selections on this exceptional CD; Peterson’s voice, sweet guitar leads and his resurrection of the Hammond B3 keyboard will blow you away.
