  • Brim John - The Tough Blues of John Brim 1950-1956 (CD)


    FEATURING: Sunnyland Slim, Big Maceo, Roosevelt Sykes, Eddie Taylor, Little Walter, Willie Dixon, Jimmy Reed, Robert Lockwood Jnr

    Were it not for his exceptional songwriting talent, John Brim may well have ended up as just a postscript in the history of the blues and specifically the history of Chicago Blues. Here are 27 examples of his art and at the time of release this is the most complete collection of his singles ever released in fact 10 of these tracks remained unreleased for many years.

    Includes one of his most famous songs, ’Ice Cream Man’ which was recorded in 1953 with Little Walter on Harmonica. The track went on to be covered by Van Halen in 1978 and became a very lucrative copyright for John Brim.

    Other classic songs include ’Tough Times’ acknowledged today as one of the finest songs to cover the serious recession affecting the African American population in 1954 and the formidable ’Rattlesnake’ which is almost the epitome of classic Chicago blues.
