Hi folks,

Since "the chitlin' circuit" has been a topic lately, I thought I'd pass on a few nice links on the matter:

The first is a review of Rhino's "chitlin' circuit" comp, featuring Bobby Bland, Shirley Brown, Tyrone Davis and a host of other artists. Bill Dahl wrote some great liner notes (it might take a while to download the link):

Here's a review of the comp. I didn't buy it myself, since I have quite a few of these tunes on other CDs-comps:

An article about bluesoul artist Bobby Rush, a staple on the southern "circuit":

Actually, I heard from people who have met Bobby Rush that he is a very soft-spoken, religious family man, very different from his on-stage persona!

And another article about a genre I didn't know much about, the chitlin' circuit drama/theater:,0,7653102.story?coll=bv-travel-dallas-headlines

All the best, Eva
