More Info:

Rogue Blues by Chicago blues legend Nick Gravenites is his first new recording in 8 years and features songs he's never released previously. The stripped-down affair features special guest Charlie Musselwhite from his old Chicago days as well as Pete Sears and Jimmy Vivino. Gravenites wrote Born In Chicago for the groundbreaking East West album for Paul Butterfield in 1965. Another classic song is Nick's Buried Alive in the Blues, written and recorded for Janis Joplin's Pearl album. Gravenites scribed hits for Janis Joplin and had his songs recorded by Big Brother and the Holding Company (which he was a member for several years), Michael Bloomfield, the Electric Flag (of which Gravenites was a founding member), Pure Prairie League, Tracy Nelson, and Roy Buchanan.
