The Chicago Kingsnakes - Blues Island

Your Price:

CD Information

Fans of no-nonsense urban blues will want to check out “Blues Island”, the great album from Byther Smith's (sometimes) road and recording group The Chicago Kingsnakes. The set covers tough shuffles, funk, minor-key blues, Berry, Billy Boy Arnold-esque rockers and a couple of acoustic numbers. The first strains of guitar on this CD directs you right into a blues haunt where imagination adds clinking glasses, cigarette smoke, and the muffled sound of people milling about. “Blues Island” magnificently captures the live feel and heart of blues in a studio setting. A little sax, a little slide, great vocals, lots of soul - how can this miss? The whole CD is top notch!
