I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Trouble Blues - Mckinley Mitchell

McKinley Mitchell (December 25, 1934 – January 18, 1986) was an American Chicago-based soul-blues and rhythm and blues singer, who started out performing gospel music. He recorded singles for Boxer Records, Chess Records (with Willie Dixon), and a variety of other record labels. Most of his releases are still only available on records. Mitchell's best known release is 1962's, "The Town I Live In", which peaked at number eight on the US Billboard R&B chart. In his later career he returned to Mississippi and recorded "I Won't Be Back for More" in 1984.

He was born in Jackson, Mississippi, and died in Chicago Heights, Illinois, from a heart attack in January 1986, at the age of 51
