After moving to Chicago, Bobby Rush led a series of bands that at times included Freddie King, Luther Johnson, Bobby King and Luther Allison. During the 60s, Rush made singles for small labels such as Jerry-O, Palos and Starville before recording ‘Gotta Have Money’ for ABC-Paramount Records, the earliest example of the Rush signature style. The success of ‘Chicken Heads’ on Galaxy, led to a contract with Philadelphia International Records for Rush Hour (1979). Throughout the 80s, Rush recorded series of albums that uniquely melded blues, soul and R&B for LaJam Records. A move to Waldoxy Records produced 1995’s excellent One Monkey Don’t Stop No Show. In the early-00s Rush launched his own Deep Rush label, debuting with 2003’s, Undercover Lover, revisiting the best of his back catalogue.
