He developed his act at the old Maxwell Street free market. Every Sunday the cream of blues royalty passed the hat, just off Halsted. Many got their start there, and no one was turned away. This is his 2nd release for Olde Skool Records.
Back-up band performing on CD is J.W. Williams & the Chi-Town Hustlers, with appearances by Shun Kikuta on guitar, Michael Peavy on Alto Sax, and the legendary Sammy Fender.
Produced by Bob Wronkiewicz & Joe Wright Jr. for JO RON 2000.
from BLUES REVUE magazine:
Kid Dynamite's EXPLOSION (Olde Skool 201) is a house party
in a box. A Kingston Mines regular in Chicago, the Kid packs plenty of blues attitude in his four-foot-five frame and writes fascinating semi-surreal tunes like "The Blues Is Getting Green," a commentary about the corrupting influence of money on the blues. Sample line: "In the year 2012, we'll be driving atomic cars / And the House of Blues will start, a franchise up on Mars."
