Living Blues #199 features Chester Chandler aka. Memphis Gold on the cover. Chandler’s deep Memphis roots date back to Rev. Robert Wilkins and years of playing in legendary Memphis deep blues bands like the Fieldstones and the J.J.’s Blues Band. Today Chandler lives in Washington, D.C., just played at one of the Presidential inaugural balls, and is set to break out after recovering from a nearly fatal accident.
Other features include Carolina deep soul man Roy “C”, and Dallas Soul Blues vocalist Ernie Johnson. We also present another in our Jas Obrecht interview series. This time it is a 1983 interview with the last surviving member of the legendary Mississippi Sheiks, Sam Chatmon.
All this plus Blues News, Obituaries, Radio Charts, our 2008 Top 50 Blues Albums and reviews of Shemekia Copeland, Howlin’ Wolf, Jerry McCain and nearly 40 others.
