(click here to pre-order on iTunes)
When blues fans Jerry Del Giudice and Edward Chmelewski started the Blind Pig label as an outgrowth of the live venue of the same name in Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1977, there was no way they could have known the home they were creating for blues and Americana music would have over the next four decades. The number of legends who have recorded for the label is staggering, and their fi nest moments are collected on the brand new Blind Pig Records 40th Anniversary Collection
With 34 classic tracks on 2 CDs, the collection spans 40 years of blues history. This wide-ranging compilation, which boasts more than 2 hours of music, is a study in the genre, from current titans like Popa Chubby, Albert Cummings and Victor Wainwright & The WildRoots — winners of Best Band at the 2016 Blues Musics — to no fewer than 13 legends enshrined in the Blues Hall of Fame in Memphis, with James Cotton, Otis Rush, Elvin Bishop, Taj Mahal, Otis Clay and Magic Slim among them, not to mention a classic live recording by the one and only Muddy Waters.
Newly remastered and featuring liner notes by writer Art Tipaldi of Blues Music Magazine, this new package was crafted with the approval of label founders Del Giudice and Chmeleweski. With the release timed for holiday shopping and an attractive price point for a 2-CD set generously packed with music, Blind Pig Records 40th Anniversary Collection is perfectly positioned to to be the perfect gift for Blues fans everywhere.
