Linsey Alexander is a true Bluesman, and these performances were recorded from a live show at a the legendary Chicago blues club, Rosa’s Lounge. Continuing the Delmark legacy of great live recordings, this album will give Linsey the respect he deserves as an artist and mentor to many younger musicians.

The milestone record “All Your Love, I Miss Loving, Live at the Wise Fool’s Pub” by Otis Rush was a touchstone for Linsey’s project. Mixed and mastered at Riverside Studio, with special thanks to Dick Shurman and others, “Live at Wise Fool’s” is an ultimate example of an authentic blues album and moment. Linsey Alexander “Live at Rosa’s” producer Julia Miller has fond memories of Wise Fool’s as well (though in a later era than Otis’s “Live” was recorded). For Linsey, the Delmark team (Miller/Barilari/Wagner) was going for an updated, modern sound, with a classic energy and pacing.
