Tapestry of Delights:
Chicken Shack formed in April 1965 in Birmingham, but had a long residency at the Star Club in Hamburg in its early days. Their first break came when Mike Vernon signed them to his new Blue Horizon label along with
Fleetwood Mac. Their second break came when
Christine Perfect, who'd previously played for an outfit called Sound Of Blue, joined them in April 1967, for she was considered to be one of Britain's finest female blues singers. Along with
Fleetwood Mac for the next couple of years they were at the forefront of the British blues boom, cutting a couple of good albums in 40 Blue Fingers... and O.K. Ken and enjoying a couple of big hits with their classic cover of Elta James' R&B ace I'd Rather Go Blind and Tears In The Wind. These two singles really represented the more commercial side of their music.
Christine Perfect left the band in August 1969 to join her husband John McVie in
Fleetwood Mac they were never the same force. They maintained a good live reputation, though, based around Stan Webb's theatrics. He was really one of the unsung guitar heros of the British blues boom and was their lead vocalist too. Sure he lacked the flair of
Peter Green but their first three albums are essential for blues fans. Indeed, he kept them together through many line-up changes. They developed quite a strong club following in the early seventies but eventually split at the end of 1973 after a German tour which was full of strife and conflict. Webb later reformed them in the late seventies, having been with Broken Glass in the interim.

Yeah, Toby Keith used to be fun now he's just scary! I'm not a Coal Miner's Daughter , but I come from a historically coal-mining town, so I guess linikg most country music was pretty much inevitable. And now that Darius Rucker from Hootie and the Blowfish (my favorite still-living male singer) has joined the ranks of country artists, my life is pretty much complete. This, however, sounds a lot more like jazz-blues than country-blues.
