Old School Rockin'
Delmark DE 818
Studebaker John has always had one foot in the blues and one foot
in rock & roll, but always liked the RAW less-is-more sound, that
he first heard on Chicago's Maxwell St. Artists that recorded blues
and R&B songs like Elvis, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Jimmy Reed, Freddy
King, Slim Harpo all had hit records played on the AM radio Top 100.
Then Bob Dylan shook things up with his going electric at the Newport
Folk Festival (using the Butterfield Blues Band as his back up). Then
came the English bands and some of them were very good, still a RAW
sound, even louder and faster than before. But enough of history. This
album is one for the people,14 all new original songs called Old School
Rockin'. Also available: Studebaker John, Maxwell Street Kings (Delmark
