Over the course of his more-than-40-year career, singer and guitarist Robert Cray has made his mark on blues music. Twenty studio releases have garnered the six-string master multiple Grammy Awards, a spot in the Blues Hall of Fame and admiration from guitar greats including collaborator Eric Clapton. Most recently, Cray released 4 Nights of 40 Years Live, a CD and DVD set featuring concert footage, interviews with Cray, and commentary by the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Buddy Guy and Keith Richards. Raitt sings Cray’s praises, designating him “an original; he’s passionate, he’s a badass and puts on one of the best shows you’ll ever see.” Well, Ms. Raitt, we think that just about sums it up.
