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!

Crosstown - Mel Brown

Mel Brown (October 7, 1939 – March 20, 2009) was an American-born blues guitarist. Brown was nominated for a Juno Award in both 2001 and 2002. Brown, a long-time smoker, died aged 69, on March 20, 2009, in Kitchener, Ontario, of complications from emphysema. One of his most celebrated tracks is the 11+ minute guitar solo "Eighteen Pounds of Unclean Chitluns", which is on his "I'd Rather Suck My Thumb" LP, and was reissued as the lead track (and title) on a Blueway collection released sometime after the Impulse albums. In 1969-1970, it got quite a bit of airplay on the San Francisco FM rock station, KSAN. If you like what I’m doing, Like ---Bman’s Blues Report--- Facebook Page!
