Alligator Records has set a September 23 release date for The Big Sound Of Lil' Ed & The Blues Imperials, the new CD from one of Chicago's most iconic blues bands. Mixing smoking slide guitar boogies and raw-boned shuffles with the deepest slow-burners, Lil' Ed Williams and his Blues Imperials -- bassist (and Ed's half-brother) James "Pookie" Young, guitarist Mike Garrett and drummer Kelly Littleton -- deliver gloriously riotous, rollicking and intensely emotional blues.
