String band leader Howard Armstrong (Louie Bluie) is the joyful, emotive, strutting subject of this tribute by fellow musician and cellist Terry Zwigoff. Filmed at the 1985 Friscofest, Louie's unique Afro-American string band shares the stage with Cab Calloway and with Les Blank and Alan Governar in an entertaining number about the ups and downs of nicotine in Cigarette Blues. Enjoyable for all audiences, Louie Bluie is 60 minutes of happy musical catharsis. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Seeing it again under much better conditions, I understand... how much this film is of a piece with Crumb.
a jaunty, engaging documentary that never at any point pretends to be comprehensive or in any way complete
