Three track of the bands recordings were featured in the Alligator Records compilation Living Chicago Blues Vol. 3 released in 1978. In 1989, he released his first solo effort Everybody Wants To Win on JSP Records. Though Lurrie's career appeared to be headed in the right direction drawing attentions of the blues fans from the early stage as a young prodigy of the blues, he suffered from drug abuse in the early 1990's which kept him away from performing on regular basis. However, he made a comeback in 1995 with album Mercurial Son, his first from the Delmark label. Series of albums followed thereafter, and he started to perform more frequently in the Chicago club circuit. Lurrie is featured on album Gettin' Up, Live at Buddy Guy's Legends, Rosa's and Lurrie's Home, a 2007 release from Delmark where he plays with his father Carey.
Soon after this release, Carey died and this became his last recorded effort. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
