Powder Blues played the local Vancouver club scene for 18 months and by 1979 the band had recorded their debut album, Uncut, and ended up releasing it on their own Blue Wave label after being turned down by all the major record labels. But the band generated enough buzz on their own causing RCA to re-release the album in 1980 and the band toured Canada and the U.S. on strength of four Top-10 singles. Uncut was certified double platinum in February 1981 and the band went on to win Best New Group at the Juno Awards. Album exports began helping 'Uncut' receive significant airplay on the BBC and elsewhere like Europe. These real-life Blues Brothers(Two of the founders are brothers) dependably deliver fun, danceable tunes in a classic jump blues groove that evokes images of Kansas City and Chicago. This is a great (out of Print) album that I scored at a great price.
