Those who like rustic soul tempered with the blues might want to investigate GRADY CHAMPION’S ‘Policeman Blues’ single. The song, cut live, is a real 60s throwback and sounds like something JOE TEX might have recorded. Blues man CHAMPION hails from Florida but actually began his musical career as a rapper with the moniker MC GOLD. In 1993 he “found the blues” and he now gigs extensively throughout the South. His single, ‘Policeman Blues’, however, is more subtle and has more soul nuances than the traditional blues he usually plays. It’s currently available via CD Baby along with his live album ‘Back In Mississippi… Live At The 930 Blues Café’.
