Album Notes
As 2013 came to a close and with his 80th birthday mere
weeks away, the godfather of British blues quietly entered a
North Hollywood Studio with his band, special guest C.J.
Chenier and co-producer/engineer Eric Corne. He walked out
with one of the finest and most personal records of his career.
The aptly titled A Special Life, serves as further testament to
John's boundless talent, vitality and ever-dynamic personality.
Along with his accomplished band, he goes back to his roots
with an eclectic album centered in the blues but with
diversions into rock and Americana. There are three new songs
penned by John and one from band members Greg Rzab and
Rocky Athas, as well as blues favorites from some of the
greats, including Albert King and Jimmy Rogers. C.J. Chenier
came to join the party on a couple of tracks (including one
written by his father), adding an exciting extra dimension with
his vocals and accordion.
Slated for a May 13th release via Forty Below Records, this is
John's first studio album in five years, a span during which the
band's chemistry has grown tremendously. It is an instant
classic and a "must have" for any blues/roots music
