The album proves who exciting live blues can be and which dynamic for the blues still can be found in the real veterans of that music. Jimmy Johnson is over 70 years old now and has been nominated for the WC Handy Blues Award in 1999. He still lives the blues with an outstanding presence on stage and is a remarkable blues guitar player as well as he still sings with a gospel-like tenor voice.
The Chicago Blues Brothers is a joyous hoot, a musical riot, a juiced-up jamboree of the coolest, funkiest soul, blues and Motown hits performed with style, class and showmanship by a troupe of some of the finest entertainers working in modern musical theatre. Infectious, dazzling, riotous, exuberant and spirited, the legacy of Jake and Elwood has been jump-started for a new generation with an energy that’s impossible to resist. The Chicago Blues Brothers are on a mission once again – in a high-octane, on-stage party you can’t afford to miss. The Chicago Blues Brothers are on a mission once again – in a high-octane, on-stage party audiences love.

The Paul Butterfield Blues Band is the debut album by Paul Butterfield, released in 1965 on Elektra Records, EKS 7294 in stereo, EKL 294 in mono. It peaked at on the Billboard pop albums chart. In 2003, the album was ranked number 476 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time, moving up to number 468 in the revised 2012 list, and also is ranked at on Down Beat magazine's list of the top 50 blues albums.
While these awards aren't as well known as the Blues Music Awards, or the Blues Blast Music Awards, they are pretty cool, in that they honor musicians who aren't on big labels, who are out there gigging and putting out music that is Blues-based, but not always strictly Blues. I'm especially psyched that they nominated my song "Freedom Is Ours" for Best Song for the Common Good.
The debut album of the Climax Chicago Blues Band (they'd later drop the "Chicago" part of the name) was recorded on two days separated by a couple of months in 1968. As British blues revivalists, Climax was better than most, featuring strong playing from guitarist Peter Haycock and keyboardist Art Wood
Their latest CD, "The Ted Vaughn Blues Band" on Harbinger Northwest Records was produced by Leon-Forrest and Paul Carlsen (Nirvana, Greg Allman, The Doors). The CD was nominated "CD of the Year" by Indie Music Digest.
