Little Milton: Long Beach Blues Festival, Long Beach

Don Snowden, Los Angeles Times, 22 September 1986

IF SOMEONE HAD distributed a checklist following Little Milton's set Saturday afternoon – rating his performance for singing, instrumental solos, arrangements, set pacing, use of dynamics, stage presence and creating audience rapport – the veteran singer/guitarist should have scored 100 in every category. His absolutely masterful, hour-long set brought the opening day of the seventh annual Long Beach Blues Festival to an early aesthetic peak.
