John Primer was part of the Legendary Magic Slim & The Teardrops for 14 years. During his days as a Teardrop, he helped to establish the "Chicago Lump Style" and always opened the show with his great voice, and attacking, slide guitar performance. Year after year the Teardrops won many W.C. Handy Awards for "The Best Blues Band of the Year" and are today still considered the best today!
Wolf Record's Manager, Hannes Folterbauer recorded John Primer with the Teardrops in the early 1990's live in Vienna, Austria while on tour. This was the very first time real blues came to Vienna!
John Primer is now one of the Greatest Bluesmen in the Business and if you listen to his latest album You Can Make It If You Try, you will know why! These recordings will bring you back to another place and time. Together with the "Kings of the Chicago Lump Style" Nick Holt on bass and Earl Howell on drums they play the REAL DEAL BLUES at its best!
