Mourning In the Morning is a 1969 album by blues singer and guitarist Otis Rush. Characterized as his first album, Rush had been cutting singles since 1955. Paired up with some regulars of The Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, Nick Gravenites and Mike Bloomfield who were then a part of Electric Flag, the album fuses Rush's deep blues sound with both Soul and Rock. The album was panned by many critics upon its release in August 1969, but has since grown a cult following. Originally released as Cotillion 9006, the album was re-released in 2006 by Collectables Records for CD.
