Born in 1927 and recently deceased on November 15, 2016 at the age of 89,Allison has been described as one of the fi nest songwriters in 20th-century blues. A highly influential composer, his songs have been recorded by numerous artists, including Pete Townshend, who cut Mose’s “Young Man’s Blues” for The Who’s Live at Leeds album in 1970. John Mayall was one of dozens of musicians who recorded Allison’s classic “Parchman Farm”, and Georgie Fame also performed many of his songs. Leon Russell (“I’m Smashed”) and Bonnie Raitt (“Everybody’s Crying’ Mercy”) also cut popular versions of Allison’s tunes.
