THE Hip Linkchain cd!

"Hip Linkchain was a Chicago blues singer and guitarist who, like so many of his contemporaries, never achieved much fame in music. This CD, first released by Black Magic records in the late 80's, is his best. It was cut at two seperate sessions with a different band at each, and on each set everything clicks perfectly. Hip was in solid form throughout, his lowdown singing and tough guitar are both great on every cut, and the majority of the song's were written by him, not just covers of the same old standards. The CD also features a live cut at the end, a version of the old chestnut "Diggin' my Potatoes".
Hip Linkchain never received much recognition for his talents, and since he died in 1989 it will be hard to shine a light on his career. There are a few other of his CD's availiable but this is definitely the first one to get."
