1959 TO 1988 THE HIP LANKCHAN STORY INCLUDING MANY ULTRA RARE SIDES NEW TO CD
'Chicago's West Side expanded through population growth in the 1950s, creating more Afro-American neighbourhoods. It was on the dilapidated and overcrowded West Side that a new and angry music was reared.' Mike Rowe. 'The West Side is bare, it's down to the blood-line. We played hard-core, bone-crushing blues. The sound was raw, strictly from the throat and stomach.' Jimmy Dawkins. This 'new and angry music' was blues, played by Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, Magic Sam, Jimmy Dawkins, Luther Allison, Mack Thompson, Johnny B. Moore, Mighty Joe Young, Eddie C. Campbell, Jimmie Lee Robinson and Hip Lankchan. Hip left us with a number of rare and obscure West Side blues 45s, some excellent blues albums and previously unissued material which is being made available for the first time. For good measure included here are four sides by Chicago harmonica player Dusty Brown - who is supported by Hip and his band - recorded for Bandera Records in 1959.
