James ”Blood” Ulmer often sounds as if he were extracting the very life juice from his guitar. But a mellower Ulmer is unearthed on Revealing, an early, rare session from 1977. A conservative rhythm section and the contained power of guest saxophonist George Adams generally keep Ulmer on his best behavior. Revealing reveals the traditionalist behind the great guitar mangler.
