"It is with great pleasure and pride that we welcome a true blues legend back to Alligator Records. James “Mr. Superharp” Cotton, over the course of a 66-year career (starting at the age of nine!), has earned his place as a world icon of blues harmonica. His signature gigantic harp sound and blast-furnace attack are unmatched, even as he turns 75 years old.

"James learned from other blues giants—Sonny Boy Williamson, Howlin’ Wolf, and of course Muddy Waters, at whose side he played for over a decade. He began recording as a teenage band leader, at Memphis’ Sun Records. He appeared on many of Muddy’s later classic sides, including the famed Live At Newport album. Since the mid-1960s, he’s led his own all-star bands of world-class players, touring relentlessly. He’s cut almost 30 albums, combining his incendiary high-energy boogies with the deepest and sweetest of slow blues, the blues he first played as a boy in the Mississippi Delta and perfected on the South Side of Chicago.

"These days James leaves the singing to his band, but every time he raises that harp to his lips, the sheer force and ferocity of his music reaffirms his status as Mr. Superharp Himself, an undisputed giant of the blues."
–Bruce Iglauer
