We’re a day late in bringing this to you, but saw this nice birthday tribute to and update on Chicago guitarist Harvey “The Snake” Mandel written by Tompkins Square Label founder Josh Rosenthal. Although it’s been several years since Mandel’s been active because of his health issues, you may recall Mandel from his playing with and alongside such greats as John Mayall, Canned Heat, the Rolling Stones, Howlin’ Wolf, Michael Bloomfield, Muddy Waters, Charlie Musselwhite, Steve Miller, Buddy Guy, and more recently the blues supergroup Chicago Blues Reunion with Barry Goldberg, Nick Gravenites, and Corky Siegel.

We hope you’ll give Rosenthal’s appeal a read and consider helping out in any way you can.
