Produced and arranged by Otis Grand

Recorded in New Orleans , USA

Winner - Best Guitar Blues CD 1996 - Real Blues Magazine (USA) Awards

Otis Grand - who is, unquestionably, the biggest star of British Blues and the only UK artist in the genre to have had significant success in America for decades - releases his brand new album" Perfume & Grime " on Sequel Records. This new release was recorded in New Orleans on Feb. 1996 with some of America's top blues musicians, includinging Joe Louis Walker, Curtis Salgado, Luther Allison, and Eddie Bo.

While retaining his signature sound," Perfume & Grime " finds Otis moving forwards to create contemporary blues with the flavours and crosscurrents of Rap, World music, New Orleans Funk, and southern Soul.

"I am very excited about this new album," explains Otis " I have written with the influence of my Blues mentors in mind but also thrown in contemporary attitudes and stylings that I like. PERFUME stands for the beauty and soul Blues. GRIME stands for my hard-hitting and nasty style of guitar playing."

"...Otis - he's so good , it's scary." - West Coast Blues Review, 1996

"Otis is the best Blues Guitarist Britain has had since Peter Green. I throw a challenge to any other (US) guitarist- beat this if you can." Steve Cooke - Blueprint Sept. 96

"Otis Grand has been voted best Blues Guitarist in the UK so many times that they ought to name the award for him. He's also very popular in the US and picked up three Handy Awards nominations." - The Hard Report (USA) Blues

"So far this has got to be my CD of the Year, and will take some knocking off of the top spot." Steve Cooke Blueprint Sept/ 96
