Ricky Allen Chicago 2002
Ricky Allen Get Out Of My Window Mel
I didn't expect to be away for so long from the blog! Back with the first side recorded with my new Numark USB deck which will make life a lot easier for recording vinyl!
You can read an excellent article by Sebastian Danchin for the Swedish magazine Jefferson which gives a good account of Ricky Allen's career. The article is based on an interview with Ricky while he was in Sweden for the the 2001 Monsteras Blues Festival.
Ricky Allen recorded a number of 45's in Chicago for the Age, USA, Tamboo labels amongst others. Unfortunately, there is only one collection on Age which has 25 tracks but it is a good starting point and worth picking up.
