Alligator Records - Blues You Can Use!

Alligator Records News, Blues & More           
"Feral blues guitar...non-stop gigging has sharpened his six-string to a razor's edge... his eloquence dazzles...he achieves pyrotechnics that rival Beck and Clapton." --Rolling Stone

"Ellis unleashed a torrent of dazzling musicianship pitched somewhere between the exhilarating volatility of rock and roll and the passion of urban blues." --Los Angeles Times

"Raw and righteous, funky and strong." --Village Voice

Southern blues-rocker Tinsley Ellis sings and plays with the conviction of, as Billboard wrote, “...a man possessed.” Over the course of 11 albums and literally thousands of live performances, Tinsley Ellis easily ranks as one of today’s most electrifying blues-rock guitarists and vocalists. He approaches his music with rock power and blues feeling, in the same tradition as his Deep South musical heroes Duane Allman and Freddie King and his old friends Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes.

In 2013 Tinsley launched his own label, Heartfixer Music with the release of the all-instrumental GET IT!, and in 2014 released MIDNIGHT BLUE. Both CDs are now available in the Alligator store.

Order SOUL FUNKY and receive an autographed copy and an Eddy "The Chief" Clearwater guitar pick.

Eddy "The Chief" Clearwater is known worldwide as a charismatic and consummate blues showman. He is an acknowledged master of the West Side school of rocking, good time Chicago blues that spawned Magic Sam, Otis Rush, and Luther Allison. Although he has performed and recorded all around the world during an amazing musical odyssey that dates back to the 1950s, Eddy always takes special care to electrify his loyal local fans whenever he is back home.

His performance this past January at SPACE, located just over Chicago's northern border in Evanston, Illinois, was obviously no exception. The Chief blasted through a riveting concert that is now available on Eddy's own Cleartone label in the Alligator Records online store. SOUL FUNKY is Eddy "The Chief" Clearwater's first live album in almost a quarter century.
