Since his 1977 LP debut, Eddie C. has only recorded a small number of albums. Most of them are excellent. And so is his latest one, produced by Dick Shurman. Influenced by Magic Sam, Eddie C.'s guitar style has an almost hypnotic edge. His songs have that certainn quality with easy-to-remember riffs and hooks. Highly recommended! EDDIE C. CAMPBELL ' gtrs/voc, KARL OUTTEN ' pno/org, DARIO GOLLIDAY ' bass, NMARTIN BINDER ' drums. Special guests: MARK CIHLAR ' hca, MARTY SAMMON ' pno/org, horns (4 tracks).
Eddie C. Campbell brings his unmistakably individual, engaging
and memorable verve and variety and his command of the Chicago blues tradition
to Tear This World Up, his most fully realized chapter in a highly
regarded discography which has generated covers by Lynyrd Skynyrd and Lee Atwater
and a Christmas staple. Eddie has long been a master of classic Chicago blues,
but always his own man, turning out venues worldwide with funk and rock &
roll as well as blues, all with his rich, wide-ranging vocals, the trademark
reverb-drenched sound of his vintage metallic purple Fender Jazzmaster guitar
and creative songwriting.
