JOHN PRIMER and BOB CORRITORE – KNOCKING AROUND THESE BLUES

JOHN PRIMER and BC albumThis title will be released on April 16, 2013

Got this album in from Delta Groove Records.  Great looking package .. they do it up right.  I dig this record .. they bill it as a Chicago blues masterpiece .. and I think they’re telling the truth. This is one of those records that could have been released on CHESS back in the 50’s, only with modern production standards.  John Primer does vocals and guitar, Bob Corritore of Arizona does harp as well as produces this record.  The drummer is Kenny “Beedy Eyes” Smith.  🙂

I give this one 4½ stars .. it’s damn near perfect ..

here’s what they say about this record on the promo ..

Veteran Chicago guitarist John Primer teams up with Arizona’s beloved emissary of the blues, Bob Corritore, for a knock-out session of classic Windy City blues. The session covers material from the songbooks of Little Walter, Robert Lockwood Jr., Willie Dixon, Jimmy Reed and Lightnin’ Hopkins, among many others, and features a crack team of A-list musicians including guitarists Billy Flynn and Chris James, pianist Barrelhouse Chuck, bassists Bob Stroger and Patrick Rynn, as well as Kenny ‘Beedy Eyes’ Smith and Brian Fahey on drums.
