CD: Memphis Gold: Prodigal Son - SRC-1911

Prodigal Son
Stackhouse Recording Company SRC-1911
(UPC 049998 191123)

Memphis Gold calls his music “Sanctified Beale Street Urban Gutbucket Blues,” and with the national release of Prodigal Son he stakes out his claim to this special realm of blues turf, which extends from his Memphis birthplace to his present home in the Washington, D.C. area. Memphis Gold (singer-guitarist-harmonica player Chester “K.D.” Chandler) performed on Beale Street as a child and learned from the legendary blues and gospel guitarist Reverend Robert Wilkins, who recorded the seminal version of Prodigal Son that the Rolling Stones once copied. Memphis Gold is joined on this CD of fresh, soulful and original blues by D.C. area musicians such as harp players Phil Wiggins and Charlie Sayles and Nighthawks drummer Pete Ragusa. Memphis Gold first released this CD on his own, to enthusiastic reviews and airplay, but with no distribution, so Stackhouse Recording Co. and City Hall Distributors are proud to bring this hidden treasure into the light.

Tracks: Come With Me, Don’t Let Her Ride, Crabcakes, Big Leg Woman, Prodigal Son, Chicken It, 3’s Tonic, Preacher Blues, Test Drive That Woman, Serves Me Rightm Melt Down Baby, Bedroom Mumba.
