Album Notes
"Neoprene Fedora" chronicles Rockin' Johnny's move to California after a storied blues career in Chicago, recording and playing with blues greats such as Pinetop Perkins, Sam Lay, Taildragger and Billy Boy Arnold. For his seventh CD, he’s written 11 songs from surf to zydeco to gut-bucket blues to plain old PARTY! The combination of his Chicago-based styles with some of the best musicians of the popping South Bay scene is intoxicating. "Neoprene Fedora" shows an artist at the height of his powers as a songwriter, singer, and guitarist.

“Neoprene Fedora embraces the entire blues tradition with a multitude of sounds.”
-Aaron Cohen, senior contributor, Downbeat

"Burgin generates real excitement.. Neoprene Fedora is deep, it’s tough, and it’s clearly aware of tradition even as it slyly bends the rules. I keep going back to it!” Tom Hyslop, Contributing Editor, Blues Music Magazine

The bay area blues tribe recently gathered yet again in San Jose at Kid Andersen’s Greaseland Studios in support of guitarist and vocalist Rockin’ Johnny Burgin. The opening title track sets the tone, as this seven-minute instrumental includes a variety of sounds that coalesces under the general vibe of Gidget being banged by Quenten Tarantino. Everything is thrown into this ambitious ocean of ideas. This sixteen-track gem that was produced and engineered by Kid Andersen clocks in at over 75 minutes. It is a wide-ranging affair that is just spectacular. Burgin and company demonstrate that original tunes can mix with a wide variety of blues dialects. On Neoprene Fedora, the contemporary and tradition drink out of the same glass. This CD receives my highest recommendation. – David Mac BLUES JUNCTION
