Naming your album after a song entitled â€œPorcupine Meatâ€ may seem a little unusual unless youâ€™re Bobby Rush, who earned his first gold record in 1971 with a hit entitled â€œChicken Heads.â€ He elaborates on his recent composition: â€œIf a lady wonâ€™t treat me right, but she doesnâ€™t want anyone else to have me, that is hard to digest.â€ Hence the lyric, â€œtoo fat to eat, too lean to throw away.â€ Porcupine Meat is Rushâ€™s debut release for Rounder Records, and one of the best recordings of his astonishing 60-plus year career. Released in late 2016 the album went on to garner a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album after a debut at #1 on the Living Blues radio chart.
