Alligator Records - Genuine Houserockin' Music Since 1971 [cached]

Emigrating to the Bay Area, Elvin cut a series of good-time albums with his own band, mixing blues with country rock and his own off-kilter sense of humor. With his all-star bands and his happy-go-lucky presence, he's been a major name on the roots music scene for almost five decades. "Can't Even Do Wrong Right" is the title track from his 2015 album, his sixth Alligator release, which won a Blues Music Award as Album Of The Year.

Toronzo Cannon, one of the brightest lights on the current Chicago blues scene, is one of Alligator's most recent signings. Growing up a few blocks from the famed Theresa's Lounge, he was first exposed to the blues while hanging out outside the club, listening to Junior Wells and Buddy Guy's music drift out the door. Toronzo's intense vocals and searing guitar sounds were forged in the crucible of the ultra-competitive local clubs, where some of the best blues musicians in the world compete for gigs. After several years as a sideman, he's been leading his own band for almost fifteen years, performing his memorable original songs. He's played the Chicago Blues Festival nine times, and performed as far away as South Africa and Armenia. Bad Contract is from his 2016 label debut, The Chicago Way.
Grammy-winning Charlie Musselwhite is a venerated icon of blues harmonica. With a recording career beginning in the 1960s, he's developed an instantly recognizable, impossible-to-imitate harmonica sound, along with his personal conversational vocal style.
