Issue Cover

Living Blues  |  Living Blues #259  

Living Blues #259 (February/March 2019) features Chicago guitarist Linsey Alexander on the cover. The Delmark Records artist is one of the top acts in the Windy City and has a growing national profile. Cash McCall first emerged on the Chicago gospel scene in the 1960s but soon moved to the blues. As a guitarist, songwriter, session man (with Chess Records), sideman and eventual front man McCall has had a fascinating career. We shine a spotlight on vocalists Soul Man Sam Evans of Austin and Booker “Blues” Brown of Memphis. Both men are central figures in their local scenes and we’re sure to hear more from them soon. During the 1950s in California John Dolphin was a music industry pioneer, innovator and entrepreneur. His Dolphin’s of Hollywood record store was open 24 hours a day, had its own radio show and a popular DJ—it even boasted a recording studio in the back where Dolphin cut and pressed his own hits.
Plus Breaking Out with Virginia bluesman Rick Franklin, the latest Blues News, obituaries for Eddie C. Campbell and Maurice McKinnies and our review section contains over 50 reviews of the latest releases in the industry.
