Otis Spann, “Must Have Been the Devil”
Track 9 from The Blues Never Die!
This is a mundane session from a well-oiled machine, manufacturing souvenirs rather than making masterpieces and fatally flawed by shoddy production…[Spann’s] five songs include the title track, ‘After Awhile,’ and a desultory ‘It Must Have Been the Devil.’
— Neil Slaven, The Penguin Guide to Blues Recordings (Penguin, 2006)
