Hey Mr. Bluesman
WC Handy Award winner, Eddie King (right) with wife Bessie and son Rompy.

Flame-throwing Chicago blues guitarist Eddie King lays down blistering solos and impassioned vocals in this stunningly recorded album which won the coveted 1998 WC Handy Award as Blues Comeback Album of the Year.

The Blues Brothers Horns and Ronnie Cuber steam through this album with their signature sound and expert articulation. Marini's high-powered horn arrangements fit Eddie's blues attack like a glove. Eddie King drives every song with his smokey soulful voice and delivers seven new original compositions.

"Eddie's approach can be likened to George Pickett's assault on Cemetery Ridge, straight ahead, yellinâ and shoutin', total commitment, but unlike the doomed Pickett, Eddie has pulled it off with a stunner of a release....You just have to check Eddie King out." Phil Wight. copyright Blues & Rhythm Magazine UK ( "Eddie King is solid as a rock." Dan Aykroyd, Feb. 1998 House of Blues Radio Hour

"Eddie King is a real deal bluesman with a capital B whose authenticity should put him up there in the ranks of his various namesakes (B.B., Albert, Freddie, Earl). A great record and a delightful discovery." Bill Milkowski copyright Jazz Times Magazine May 1998 (

"This is an album that just makes you want to hear more from this highly overlooked artist." Cub Koda copyright Vinyl Junkie Nov.1997

"Eddie King's beautifully crafted Another Cow's Dead is a result of the all-too-rare synergy between prodigious musical talent and inspired production...The whole set is focused, coherent, and consistently brilliant." Jack Oudiz copyright Blues Access Magazine Winter 1998 no.32 (

"Stax era soul...solid modern blues by an undeservedly neglected artist--- maybe he won't stay neglected long." Jim DeKoster copyright Living Blues magazine Vol.31 no.4 (www.LivingBluesOn
