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.
MP3s that will appear on this blog will be available for only a week or so(usually far less) and are here for sampling purposes only. It is not my intention to violate copyrights. My only goal is to share my love/hate relationship with music and to expose people to music they may be unfamiliar with. If you are the creator or copyright owner of a song or anything else that might be posted here, please CONTACT ME by sending an e-mail to homercat at shaw dot ca if you wish to have it removed. I don't know why someone would want me to quit promoting their music for free and therefore putting money in their pockets by getting people to buy their stuff, but I will quit if you e mail me.
Most importantly, if you like an artist you hear here , you should definitely do your best to take the knowledge you gain here and go out and BUY THEIR ALBUMS to help support the artist.
