Iceman Robinson
I've Never Been Loved

Out of Chicago, with a nod to Delta legends like Elmore James and Muddy Waters, comes the exuberant blues of Riler "Iceman" Robinson. Iceman's rough-and-ready barroom boogie style and ferocious slide techniques has a few active practitioners on the blues scene today. Think of the brash intensity of a Hound Dog Taylor or J.B. Hutto, temper it with some of R.L. Burnside's hypnotic Mississippi rhythms and you have some idea (though by no means a complete picture) of what the Iceman's music is like. Chester Burnett's "Baby How Long" and Hound Dog's "Sadie" are just two of the songs here to get heated up by the Iceman. The postman may always ring twice, but the Iceman keeps comin' on strong.
