Product Description

Bluesman James Kinds was born in Drew, Mississippi in 1943. He moved to Chicago in 1959 and quickly got involved in music. He hung out at Blues clubs on the west side and formed his first group, Oasis, in 1967. He recorded Ada in the mid-'70s for Cloud 9 and it's still James' show-stopping closer which he sang at the 2007 Chicago Blues Festival. In 1982, Oasis issued West Side featuring guests Barkin' Bill, Eddie 'Jewtown' Burks, Jimmy Dawkins and Hip Linkchain. Since then he has continued to play the Blues, issue three CDs and maintain a Chicago presence by visiting and performing here often. With special guest Eddie Shaw.

Review

Kinds' superbly expressive voice has an endearing quaver to it that is reminiscent of Syl Johnson's restless vibrato. Kinds' singing and playing neatly conjure up the smoky Chicago club scene of recent decades past. --Living Blues

Bluesman James Kinds was born in Drew, Mississippi back in 1943. He moved to Chicago in 1959, when this blues-gal was only eight years old, and was quickly swept into the music scene of the day. He hung out at blues clubs on the West Side, forming his first group Oasis, in 1967, recording "Ada" in the mid-'70s for Cloud 9 which is still a James Kinds' blistering show-stopping closer. In 1982, Oasis released West Side featuring guests Barkin' Bill, Eddie 'Jewtown' Burks, Jimmy Dawkins and Hip Linkchain. Since then James has continued to play the blues, issued three CDs, and maintains a Chicago presence by visiting and performing at clubs in the city often, usually with special guest Eddie Shaw. Even with this lengthy history, unless you're from Iowa or a dyer fan of Delmark Records [where if they don't have it, you don't need it], trying to place James Kinds may leave you scratching your head.

James Kinds has struggled his entire life, nearly all of it living in obscurity. There are many reasons for that, one could point to the fact that James rides rather loose with his blues styles, skirting many, and settling on even fewer, and it's this ability to mesh the blue's genres that may have been his greatest downfall. Blues fans who were just discovering these vibes back in the 60's and 70's needed to pigeonhole every song they heard, at the same time blue's musicians were busy mixing and meshing the styles, cities, backbeats, and delivery. No one played it more fast and loose than James Kinds, that, along with his purposeful lack of perfection, seeming to embrace live performances in his recordings, made him rather difficult to box in. Now some fifty years out, blues fans are looking back to see what they've overlooked, to hear what they're ears may not have been ready to hear ...
