Rufus Luckett - Tell Me Baby

Couldn't find anything on Rufus Luckett on internet except that " Tell Me Baby" track was released as a 45 on Jew and Blue Soul. So any info is welcome.
This small piece of Chicago blues is been shared by KansasJoe and I kinda like it.

Are you sure that label is called "Jew"?.. Wouldn't be Jewell would it?

@ Franck Goldwasser, I think it's a strange label name but that's what it's called. Check out the tape cover middle left and http://www.ebay.com/itm/361430080790 for label shot of the 45.

The picture is from the cd I ripped. And now I also found the cassette. In addition to the info on the cd there it says: 'Guitar, Bass, Vocalist And Arranger'. And, yes, the label is 'Jew'. Sorry, no other info.

If you do a google search for Rufus Luckett - Tell Me Baby, and look at images you'll see the 'Jew" record label. Hard to believe, but there it is. Here's a link to the image. I've shared it with a few people who didn't believe it until I showed them the label. That said, the music isn't bad.

According to Rob Ford's Blues Discography 1971-2000, those tracks (effectively on the Jew label, probably for Jewtown another name of the Maxwell Street Market, for Jews came to live here in numbers during the late XIXth and early to middle XXth Centuries) were recorded in Chicago on three sessions between 1987 and 1990). Rufus Luckett is playing guitar and maybe also bass (overdubed) with drums and Carey Bell is blowing the harmonica on several (or all) tracks with maybe Rufus blowing also the hca on other tracks.
