Alligator Records, Part 1

Description

For the last thirty years, Bruce Iglauer and Alligator Records have been one of my best clients. Bruce has a perfect understanding of how to market blues (and tells some of the worst jokes on the planet), and his art directors always make great use of my photos. Here is a representation of some of my favorite work with Alligator. An extra bonus is hearing some of my favorite artists playing live in my studio while I work. From three hours of Johnny Winter playing slide guitar for an audience of three, to Mavis Staples singing gospel and telling me stories about her life while we worked- it doesn’t get much better than that. (Can’t forget Luther Allison explaining to me why Snickers Bars from France taste better than US Snickers Bars- it’s the sugar content!).
