Editorial Reviews

Studebaker John has always had one foot in the blues and one foot in rock & roll, but always liked the raw less-is-more sound that he first heard on Chicago's Maxwell St. Artists that recorded blues and R&B songs like Elvis, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Jimmy Reed, Freddy King, Slim Harpo all had hit records played on the AM radio Top 100. Then Bob Dylan shook things up with his going electric at the Newport Folk Festival (using the Butterfield Blues Band as his back up). Then came the English bands and some of them were very good, still a raw sound, even louder and faster than before. But enough of history! This album is one for the people, 14 all new original songs called Old School Rockin'.

I've heard several of Grimaldi's albums over the years and have enjoyed them very much. I saw a live performance of his about 13 years ago and enjoyed it also. This album, for me though, is at another level entirely. As the title implies, this album cuts a deep, heavy, dark, rockin' blues groove with an over driven guitar and wailing harp that is impossible not to to tap your feet to. I would go as far as to say that after hearing this album, Studebaker John has become one of the premier blues guitarists and harp players today.
No one should be surprised that he grew up in Chicago as that city's blues heritage definetely rubbed off on him. Folks, this guy is the real deal . For blues enthusiasts, especially of the heavy rockin' type sound, this album is a must have. Highly recommended!

as usual, another great album by John Studebaker after the raw sound on "Maxwell Street Kings" this time it's heavy rockin' blues. Favorite tracks : Trumblin down the road (great harmonica), She got it right and Rockin that boogie.

It would seem that Studebaker John doesn't get the respect and following he deserves. Straight blues, harp, guitar, dance-able, good rhythm, some stretch during vocals, his recordings should get more airplay and live stage. I like SJ's sound, and it's catching; believe you me.

Following Delmark debut with Maxwell Street Kings, old-time Chicago Bluesman Studebaker John is back with Old School Rockin'.

14 original tracks of Rockin' Blues reviving but not imitating sound of 1960s thus modernizing it by adding new rhythmic spices in combination with already developed slide guitar technique and dare-devil singing let alone expert but infrequent harp playing, reminiscent good old times when likes of his main slide inspiration, Hound Dog Taylor ruled the stage with fiery and highly flammable brand of Chicago Blues.

Nothing new but nothing unacceptable about this album. Studebaker John works in established comfortable boundaries where he does well enough.

Personnel: Studebaker John (vocals, slide guitar, harp); Doug Organ (Hammond b-3); Bob Halaj (bass); Albert "Joey" Dimarco (drums).
