For true Blues Fans
5 February 2001 | by (St. Paul, Minnesota) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the premiere on Minneapolis's West Bank in 1984. It was shot at Wilebski's Blues Saloon in St. Paul. The family has since sold the blues bar, which continues to showcase regional and national blues talent. If you can find this movie its a great one for blues fans, featuring John Lee Hooker, the Gravanetes Band, Lady Bianca, Ben Sidran, Doctor John, Willie and the Bees, the Minnesota Barking Ducks and others. The producer Robert Schwartz went on to produce "Iron Will" for Disney and has since produced some tv movies. It seems a bit aimless at times as a story, but the performances are great. A time capsule for blues fans.
