In his Prime

Nice cover story on Chicago bluesman John Primer in the February edition of Living Blues magazine. Primer, who earned his chops playing with Muddy Waters, Junior Wells, and Magic Slim, has been busy in recent years, with his 2008 release All Original and teaming with Lurrie Bell, Billy Branch, and Billy Boy Arnold on last year’s acclaimed Chicago Blues: A Living History project.

By the way, as part of the magazine’s 40th anniversary celebration this year, Living Blues is taking a look back at one decade per issue (starting with the 1970s in the current issue), including photo layouts of covers and stories, as well as a few other nice features such as “Thirty of the very best blues albums” from the period. If you don’t already have one and you’re a fan of blues history, 2010 might be a good time to start a subscription to this publication.
