"Don't tell someone who lives in Chicago that the blues are a disappearing art. The city's South Side and North Side clubs are still booking the blues, and guitarists and singers are still coming up through the city's bands -among them the 10 performers gathered on ''The New Bluebloods.'' The difference in the current crop of blues performers is that many of them have had outside musical experience as well - Donald Kinsey as lead guitarist with the Wailers, Gloria Hardiman with gospel groups, Valerie Wellington as an actress. 'The New Bluebloods' shows 1960's soul and gospel music infiltrating the blues, and while most of the songs address time-honored blues topics - lost love and hard times - there are a few modern twists, notably Michael Coleman's 'Woman Loves a Woman.' On the basis of one song each, Mr. Kinsey, Melvin Taylor, Maurice John Vaughn, the Sons of Blues/Chi-Town Hustlers (a merger of two bands) and Li'l Ed Williams and the Blues Imperials especially bear watching -but there's vocal power and guitar finesse all over the album." - New York TImes
