Synopsis

Amazon.com
This great Eddy Clearwater album is a romp through the blues and many of its permutations. The Mississippi native, whose name is an ode to Muddy Waters, comes by his blues naturally. He's able to take the standard forms into new territory without losing the essence of the music's truth. His song "I Wouldn't Lay My Guitar Down" is everything that Chuck Berry would like to have done in the 1980s. "Chills" goes the other way, evoking the great T-Bone Walker with its single-string leads and swinging feel. The guests--Carey and Lurrie Bell, Lafayette Leake, and Casey Jones among them--are indicative of Clearwater's respect in the Chicago community. The Chief may be a modern blues album, but it's built on foundations as ageless as cotton fields and hard work. Too long overlooked, its availability on CD is a welcome addition to the blues world. --Robert Gordon

CD Reviews

Great Blues Album with a Touch of R&B
Boston Bluesman | Boston, MA USA | 04/05/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I saw The Chief at Kingston Mines in Chicago. Had no idea who he was at the time, but loved the show and bought the CD. I have been a fan since and this is one of his best albums. This is a great blues CD with touches of Chuck Berry (or did Chuck copy Eddie?) style rock and roll. Blues fans will not be disappointed. Buy this CD."
